Scotch Whisky and Citrus Fruit Liqueur recipe.

This is what you will need:Citrus fruit for Whisky Liqueur

  • 600ml/1 pint Scotch whisky
  • 1 unwaxed orange
  • 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 1 unwaxed lime
  • 2cm piece root ginger grated
  • 225g/8oz granulated sugar

If you can’t find unwaxed citrus fruit then give ‘normal’ fruit a scrub in hot soapy water, rinse and dry.

Method:

  • Peel the rind from the fruits making sure you only get the skin and not the bitter white pith.
  • Place all of the rinds into a sterilised kilner jar.
  • Juice the fruits and pour the juice, the whisky, the ginger and the sugar into the jar on top of the citrus rinds.
  • Shake well, place in a dark, cool cupboard for 6 weeks.
  • Shake the jar every day for the first 2 weeks until all of the sugar is dissolved.
  • Wait  6 weeks, strain the liquid through a double layer of muslin to get a really clear liqueur
  • Pour into a sterilised bottle and seal.
