  • 500ml vodka
  • 2 tablespoons juniper berries
  • 1 tablespoon green cardamon pods

Combined into a container making sure all the ingredients are submerged close and shake.

Aging And Straining

Seal the container and let steep in a cool, dry place for 4 days.

Get your cheesecloth to filter it helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the remaining liquid and juice.
