  1. In my old folks house, it was always the tradition to drink "Besk", which is Wormwood (Artemisia Absintium... the bitter herb used in all bitters and vermouth) infused in vodka.

  2. I invented "Fireman's Bitter" on this xmas day, the name in honour of Jim Campbell and other firefighters...

  3. Just put it all in a bottle, let infuse for a few days, the longer the hotter and more bitter. A vodka with a touch of sweetness is preferred (such as Moskovskaya, Wyborova). If dry vodka (such as Absolut) is used, put a few grains of sugar into it, not as much as to make it sweet, just to mellow and bring out the flavours a bit more.
