Turkish Delight Vodka

Remember this...


Wanna know how I turned this innocent bottle of vodka into something special, like this?


It's so simple, a child could do it.  A child probably shouldn't, but you get the drift!

So, you have turkish delight and you have vodka.  Why not put them together and make something so deliciously naughty with next to no effort?!  All you do is wash the sugar from 100g pink turkish delight chunks and pop the little blighters into your voddy!  Dissolve 1tbsp caster sugar in 2tbsp rose water and add that too.  Pop the lid on, nice and tight, give the bottle a bit of a shake and find it a home in a little dark cubby hole.  Shake the bottle once every few days until the turkish delight has dissolved and strain the rosey vodka through a sieve lined with muslin.  Decant into a pretty bottle and there you have it!

No need to buy flavoured vodka ever again.  Fancy something fruity, pop some berries in there.  Something sweet, how about a crushed up Dime bar?  How about bubblegum?!  The possibilities are endless.  Just don't drink it all at once.....

Probably a silly question but why do you wash the powdered icing sugar off the turkish delight, but then add caster sugar in with the vodka? Wouldn't it be OK to just leave it on or does it go funny when mixed with the vodka? I've made lots of fruit vodka but none with sweets yet, and been meaning to make a turkish delight one for ages, so just thought I'd check! :-)

Hi Kavey,

The icing sugar causes the vodka to go cloudy and makes it very difficult to strain out of the final mixture. Caster sugar is dissolved before going it, keeping the vodka clear.

Hope this helps.
