Spotykach is a national Ukrainian alcoholic drink.
I suggest to cook it at home.
You will need
- - lemon - 5 pieces-
- - sugar - 600 g-
- - vodka - 0,75 l-
- - coriander seeds - 0.5 teaspoonful-
- - Carnation buds - 0.25 teaspoons.
With lemons, do this: Rinse them, and then scald with boiling water. Scrambled lemons must be cut into slices without removing the peel. Now take a three-liter jar and mix the following in it: coriander, clove, sliced lemon and vodka. The resulting mixture is covered and leave to be infused for one week.
Take the pan and pour 0.5 liters of water into it. Add sugar to it, stir it and bring the water to a boil. Then cook it on high heat. The readiness of this syrup is easy to determine: lower one of its droplets in cold water. If it looks like a soft ball, then you can remove the sugar syrup from the fire.
After the tincture is ready, take gauze,Fold in 2 layers and strain the liquid. Strain the strained tincture with sugar syrup. Mix everything thoroughly. Pour the resulting drink into bottles and send it to storage until the desired occasion in a dark cool place. Spot the lemon ready!
