Am mking some of this and this for Christmas. I'm not normally a vodka drinker so can anyone please tell me where I can buy some cheaply?

Have you tried Aldi/lidl?

Asdo, tesco, sainsbo - all sell their own brand vodka quite cheaply, just get a small bottle

Try Sainsburys own brand, its just as good as Smirnoff

Tesco value is ok. the one with the stripey blue label.

I just feel people judge when they see me buying it blush

We drink Asda smart price, apparently its made by smirnoff as its one of few that are triple distilled.

It's £6.50 a bottle or something but doesnt give you a hangover like some cheap stuff LOL.

I use Tesco Value and make butterscotch vodka - always tastes fine ,,,,

HOM, I am intending to make Christmas Pudding Vodka soon:
1 litre vodka
4 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
2 cloves
peel of 1 orange and 1 lemon
25g each currants, raisins, dried figs(halved if large)

Combine all ingredients in large bowl or jug, then decant into large (they recommend 1.3 litre) sterilised (dishwasher okay) bottle. Seal with cork or screw cap.

Leave for at least 2 weeks in a dark place, shaking occasionally to agitate the ingredients, then use a funnel lined with a coffee filter paper to decant into "pretty sterilised bottles of your choice" (but no info on where to get them!) - add a fresh piece of lemon and orange peel and a fresh cinnamon stick if you like.

With thanks to Bramshott for the recipe

oooh butterscotch vodka!!

Recipe please !!!

Friendlypizzaeater Sat 11-Oct-08 16:15:08

Just as above - batter butterscotch pop in bottle, leave for 2 weeks, shaking every few days. Decant through a filter and drink !!

I drunk a few inches of the plain vodka and added my BS to bottle rather tahn pour it into another container. If in a rush put BS in bottle, seal and stick on top shelf of dishwasher for a wash cycle then decant as before ......

Friendlypizzaeater Sat 11-Oct-08 16:15:46

I used a full pack of BS to 3/4 of a bottle of vodka ....

Friendlypizzaeater Sat 11-Oct-08 16:16:40

Oom nom nom


Friendlypizzaeater Sat 11-Oct-08 16:19:48

Dont worry - just break them up a bit to get through the top of the bottle ....

Have started thread for all our yummy recipes; they can get 'lost' on threads sometimes.

If you like gin, Sainsburys Basics is six quid a bottle and raspberry or lemon gin is lovely.

thehouseofmirth Sat 11-Oct-08 18:41:47

Ooh, how do you do lemon gin?

nappyaddict Sat 11-Oct-08 18:43:28

if you are planning on drinking a lot of don't get tesco value. it gave me blackout shock

fatzak Sat 11-Oct-08 18:51:26

Avoid Morrisons "Morrinov" (yes, really that it was it was called!!" It used to bring me out in an awful rash blush

themoon666 Sun 12-Oct-08 16:06:38

LOL at nappyaddict.

If you drink 'a lot' of any vodka you get a blackout.


Horton Sun 12-Oct-08 17:14:32

Lemon gin is really easy - just peel off a couple of curls of lemon peel and pop them in the bottle and leave for a month or two. You can also add sugar. A little is quite nice, lots makes it more of a liqueur. Lime and orange are also nice.

Horton have you seen my thread for recpies like yours ??
