Made a bottle of amber liqueur.
Used 98% Alc/vol Spirit (spirytus) over grains of natural Baltic amber.
It tastes wicked, sort of like PineSol, but man-oh-man is it ever potent. One shot glass of this stuff does what a bottle of wine used to.
Had one shot and wrote a whole chapter of my novel.
By the way, the liquor is for medicinal purposes. Amber vodka in Polish folk medicine is said to be a remedy for: flu, asthma, rheumatism, pneumonia, and heart ailments (?), and as I found out it aids creativity too.
Here's how to make it.
Ingredients, per 250ml:
- 98% spirit (had to import it from Europe - not available here)
- 20 - 40 grains of amber
Place amber in the bottle, add the spirit. Cap. Wait five days.
How to use:
1: Add a few drops to tea, or whatever you are going to drink. 2: Rub into sore joints.
You can use the same amber twice.
One shot glass cured my sore throat and, I swear, I felt rejuvenated - could not stop jumping, it was so potent ;)
