Cumin Cordial (Kümmel)
Yield: 1 liter
Kümmel is a traditional Dutch liqueur that is flavored with a blend of caraway, cumin and fennel; in the U.S., it’s typically found as a cocktail ingredient rather than sipped straight. It’s not easy to find, but it’s very easy to make.
Add spices to the bottle of vodka. Cover, place in a dark cupboard and let steep for 3 weeks.
Strain out spices. Sweeten spiced vodka to taste with honey. Keeps, refrigerated, for up to 6 months.
