Pompelmocello (Grapefruit Digestive Drink)

In Uncategorized on January 16, 2011 at 8:43 pm

 

 

1 750 mL bottle vodka (decent, but not super-premium)

5 large grapefruit, zested with just the peel and none of the white pith

2 cups water

2 cups sugar

A pitcher or mason jar

A stopped 1 L bottle (such as this)

Add grapefruit zest and vodka to a pitcher or mason jar that is large enough to hold more than the entire bottle of vodka, seal and let sit for at least four days at room temperature and up to two weeks in the fridge, stirring the peels a little every few days.  Warm the water up in a medium-sized bowl in the microwave and stir in the sugar, whisking vigorously to combine. Allow time to cool slightly and then add to grapefruit and vodka, letting it steep for one more night. Strain contents into the bottle and store in the fridge.
