I put enough chopped ginger root to fill up about 1/3 of a quart jar. Added 100 proof spirit and let it sit for a few weeks.
If you just let it sit, it will stay crystal clear. If you shake it up before decanting off the ginger it will go a little hazy, but still just fine.
I did not add any sugar. Holy smokes, really extracts all the ginger goodness!
For a great drink, I mix 1 part of my ginger PD with 2 parts of my own rum, then top off glass with coke. The coke brings sweetness to the ginger and the rum and the combo is fantastic.

100 proof ginger sounds like the beginning of a MASSIVE Moscow Mule!

Preparation: Combine vodka and ginger beer in a copper mug or highball glass filled with ice. Add lime juice. Stir gently and garnish with a lime slice.

Be careful with those copper mugs.

When I was an apprentice the boss's wife brought me some orange juice in a chrome-plated copper jug which had badly worn plating so the juice was in contact with the copper. Instant projectile vomit.

I just started a batch.
I have some ujssm 110 proof. I took two quarts filled them with ripe strawberries and topped them off with ujssm. Within hours my berries started turning white.
It looks real nice. I cant wait for the next step of making some syrup filtering and proofing it down for consumption.

Thank you for this recipe.

Up date

This stuff is dangerous. Proofed it down to 20%. Ate one of the strawberries and had a few sips and instantly started sweating. This stuff plays tricks with your mind. You seriously can't tell that it's 20% at all. You could be in trouble very quickly.

This is some really great stuff. I wonder what the shelf life is? I want to try this method with apples, blueberries, peach. I can adjust the sugar down a bit. This puts a whole new spin on making small handcrafted batches.

I will keep you guys posted.

I have done blackberry PD. It is very nice too. Try it.

I macerated frozen blackberries from the grocery freezer case (fresh would have been better but unfortunately they don't grow close by). The result was a deep blue-black spirit with a very rich flavor. I tempered it down to 80 proof from the maceration strength of 180 proof (calculated from the change in volume). It is a semi-sweet brandy-like spirit...very "user friendly".

Trying this with pineapples...should I still add lemon juice when I rack it the first time?

I have been away from the craft for over a year now, and finally life has been calm enough to make something.

I asked the Mrs what I should make. She want vodka whisky or rum?

The words were still ringing in the air when as she blurts out the words 'panty dropper.'

So I have a half gallon jar, with 180 proof birdwatchers and 1kg of the cheapest frozen fruit smoothie mix I could find. Straws, blackberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants.

Haven't even finished the second sugar rest, and damn this stuff is fine!

Think I have missed this stuff more than I realised.

Now I have to rest my old bones for a while. The Mrs sampled it with me, and the panty dropping qualities of this elixir are still strong!

Gonna call in to work sick I think....
Drinkin, smokin, and tryin ta free my mind
