Clean the leaves carefully - but only if necessary. If wet - leave them to dry for a short period in the shadow - on paper towel. Put 1 deciliter leaves in a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Cover with 5 deciliter clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Let steep for 2-4 days in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F).
