I've seen it come up on here before but I can't work out what it is. Can you get away with using the cheap stuff?

Hi all advice, please. I made chocolate toffee vodka, shook it every day for a couple of weeks, bottled most of it yesterday as a Christmas present, saving some for myself.....and it's gone solid! I put it on the radiator for a while, which caused it to become a bit liquid again, but it's solidified again.I need to phone my friend in the morning sad Any ideas???

Hallo All,
Am making the Xmas rum - with 5 days to xmas does anyone know if sticking it in the dishwasher will speed up the infusion, as it seems to be doing for the vodkas?

Mine isn't looking that good the vodka's cloudy pink and the jellies still whole.

I'll try skittles next I think with not such good vodka just supermarket's own.

Does infused vodka only last 1-2 months?!

Christmas pud vodka is fantastic when used as a cocktail base with prosecco. Veeeery strong and liquer-like on its own but divine as a mixer!

Ths year i made choc vodka (horrid) limincello - tastes fab but very sweet and Xmas pud vodka - tastes nice but by heck it's strong

I just made some berry fruit jelly vodka. No dishwasher so I'll just keep shaking it. Sounds like I'll need to filter it too?
I'm going to try some of these ideas though they sound lush.

Mine too, prudence.

my toffee vodka keeps separating as well as not disolving much sad

Ok, another question. I wanted to make turkish delight vodka, but I can't get the real sugar dusted turkish delight anywhere. Do you think the chocolate turkish delight bar would work?

that should be toffee not fodder grin

pettyprudence Wed 12-Dec-12 18:33:47

ok I have bottle of toffee vodka on the go - no dishwasher. I put the bottle in a jug of hot water which helped disolve some of the fodder but but now I have big block glued to the bottom of the bottle sad its only been a couple days. i keep shaking. will it work out ok????? Eek grin

MissCellania why don't you mash the fruit up a bit, add some sugar and shake it every so often. I expect a week would be ok, the just strain it through a muslin or coffee filter. I bet it would still be lovely.

Anyone else sampled a bit too much and needs to make some more for xmas gifts? blush

MissCellania Wed 12-Dec-12 11:05:08

Am I too late to make a fruit vodka now? I was going to do a sweets one so wasn;t hurrying, but I picked up some cheap raspberries and blackberries yesterday and wanted to make that. Checking recipes though, they say to leave for months?
Any advice?

I've just finished rhubarb and custard vodka. I used 2 bags of sainsburys sweets 1/4 bags and probably about a third of a big bottle of Smirnoff and it is lovely.

This website has lots of ideas, some are crazy!

Is it possible to do this with peach scnapps? I was thinking cherry drops nice?

TheFutureMrsB Tue 11-Dec-12 21:28:56

I am going to Asda tomorrow especially for Vodka, cream, mars bars and werthers! Bad thread! grin

Terry's chocolate orange is on offer buy 1 get 2 free in tesco. I've just made my first batch and it's amazing AND there was a little left over for me to save!

Yeah a full bag, I think I will try a little bit of it with cream and fingers crossed it thickens!

aimingtobeaperfectionist Sun 09-Dec-12 08:05:46

A full bag for 1L? Why not take a little bit and add cream, see what happen so you're not risking the entire lot?

MaltesersR4LifenotJust4Xmas Sun 09-Dec-12 07:49:25

I added a full bag of the fun size bars! I'll maybe take melt one more mars with cream and add that?

aimingtobeaperfectionist Sun 09-Dec-12 00:52:44

Malteasers- how many mars bars did you add? I'd imagine you could add cream still? Maybe pour the whole lot into a bowl and whisk?
