Liquorice Schnapps

A couple Liquorice roots
Unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof)
Wash a couple of roots well and leave them to dry on a piece of paper towel - in the shadow. Break them into smaller pieces and place them in a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Cover with approx. 25 centiliter clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Let steep for 1-7 days in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F). Don't steep for more than a week, or you will extract some bad-tasting constituents that will spoil the pure liquorice taste. 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) for at least 1 month in a dark place at room temperature before serving.
