A new years of sorts

This might be better suited for that other new years.

After preparing a palatable pomegranate liqueur this past rosh hashanah, I have spent the previous months perfecting this pleasant potable.

Of all my infusions, this one is the easiest.  The sugar is already in the juice and the flavors are good to go after a day. Letting it sit for a month or two adds depth, but not necessary.

Pomegranate Liqueur

Image

16 oz bottle of pomegranate juice (did not venture into fresh squeezed pomegranate juice, will hopefully try that next year )

10 ounces of gin : New Amsterdam, a very bold, citrusy gin

6 ounces of vodka

1 lemon peel

1 toasted star anise

1/2 toasted cinnamon stick

1/4 tsp of nutmeg

After sitting for one week, this was double filtered via coffee filters and let sit for another 3 weeks
