Unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof)
Rinse the hawthorn berries and leave them to dry in the shadow - on paper towel. Fill 2/3 of a clean glass jar with berries. Cover well with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Close the jar with a tight-fitting lid. Let the berries steep for 5-6 weeks - in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F). Shake lightly and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Store (age) it for a couple of months in a dark place at room temperature before serving.
