Lime Vodka Recipe

On a trip to the local supermarket I noticed a basket of limes, all reduced to 10 pence. The idea of a lime infused vodka came instantly to mind. What’s more this recipe only uses the zest, so I used the pulp to make a Lime Granita too, double bubble!

This flavoured vodka is great for mixing with Coke.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle of vodka
  • 7 Limes

Method

  1. Wash the limes under warm water, to get rid of any wax coating
  2. Removed the lime zest, (making sure that you don’t get any of the pith as it will make the taste bitter). This can be done with a zester or with a knife  if you use a knife shred the bigger pieces of lime to increase the surface area.
  3. Put the lime zest into a sterile bottle or Kilner jar
  4. pour over the vodka and store in a dark, cool place for 2 to 3 weeks, shaking frequently.
  5. Strain vodka through muslin or a coffee filter and bottle into a clean bottle.

The lime zest will lose it’s vivid green colour and the vodka will take on a pale green hue
