Step 1

  • 4-5 pitted prunes
  • Raisins – 15 grams
  • Vanilla a drop

Hawthorn Liqueur Recipe

Put the hawthorn fruits into your jar. If you are adding the added options add them now.

(before peeling, scald the lemon with boiling water and wipe dry to remove any preservatives on its surface).

Add in the alcohol make sure it covers all the berries.

Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking your Hawthorn Infused Vodka

Seal the glass jar tightly. Leave it in a warm dark place for 20 days. Shake it every couple days.

After the aging time it’s time to strain your Hawthorn Infused Vodka.

Carefully strain the liquid through several layers of cheesecloth. It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point of straining out the pulp and rind, gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to you can strain your Hawthorn liqueur one more time through a coffee strainer.

Step 2

Bring water to a boil stir in the honey keep on stirring till it has all dissolved.

(If you’re using honey don’t heat up the syrup above 104 Farenheit which means let it get warm. Stir the mixture until it becomes homogenous to preserve healthy substances.)

Mix the infusion and syrup. Bottle the liqueur for storing. In case of settling or cloudiness filter through cotton wool. 22-24% ABV.

Prior to serving leave it for 5 days in a cold dark place to let the taste stabilize.

Finally add water to taste if needed. Let age further for a soter and smoother finish.


I am listing the simplest utensils that you can use, the ones mom should have already have in the kitchen.
– A large glass jar (I used a 3 liter jar) 
 large plastic bowl
– measuring cups (liquid and dry)
– metal strainer
– cheesecloth
– saucepan
– small funnel
– glass bottles, or storage containers, for the final product, you can either use the glass Jar you used before, or just buy a second one. 

Notes on Utensils: And ingredients

  • Avoid plastic as much as possible when working with strong alcohol. Glass is always preferable.
  • Use organic Hawthorn to avoid pesticide residues.
