Cumin Cordial (Kümmel)
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 each of the three spices to the bottle of vodka. Cover, place in a dark cupboard and let steep for 3 weeks.
Strain out the spices. Sweeten the spiced vodka to taste with honey. Keeps, refrigerated, for up to 6 months.
