Have you ever had Everclear? I haven’t. Boy was I in for a surprise. I wanted to take a test sip of my infusion and nearly burnt my mouth off. Holy Shit!!! As a tincture, this infusion is supposed to be taken under the tongue, the softest most vulnerable spot in the whole mouth. And yes, that’s exactly where I put it. I screamed a little, swallowed as fast as I could and then filled my mouth with water and let it sit there for a few minutes.
Now that I have this infusion, I have to make it palatable. I was considering adding the water flavoring packets. I’ve also thought of a juice concentrate. I don’t want to water it down too much because I don’t want to have to drink 8 ounces for one dose.
I could have used vodka or something else less brutal. But the reviews say Everclear is the best to pull out the good stuff. I want to be able to micro dose. Just a little bit to help keep anxiety and pain down but I don’t want to get drunk. If I drink it straight, I only need 1/2 to 1 teaspoon. I could add it to the limoncello we made a couple months back. Also made with Everclear and a LOT of sugar.
So I strained the Everclear and put it in another bottle. You can see the green color in the picture. I used a coffee filter to strain it and it worked wonderfully! I’ll keep you posted. If you have any ideas, please feel free to share. ♥
