  • 1l bottle vodka



    Originally associated with Russia, Slavonic, Baltic and Scandinavian countries, vodka has become…

  • 1 tsp rosewater
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 100g Turkish delight, chopped, plus a little extra for packaging


  1. Pour 100ml out of the vodka bottle – you can keep this in the freezer for Christmas cocktails. Mix the rose water and caster sugar together until the sugar dissolves, then pour into the vodka bottle using a funnel.

  2. Wash any sugar off the Turkish delight, then put it in the bottle. Screw on the lid and leave to stand for up to a month, swirling occasionally until the Turkish delight dissolves. Serve with soda water and ice, or drizzle neat over vanilla ice cream for a boozy treat.

I started my bottles on the 21st November and so far they do look a bit nasty with pink goo at the bottom. However like Laura I plan to strain before giving as gifts. Also I am not sure about putting the pieces in as decoration at the end as I am worried that they will also disintegrate and look horrid. As Elaine said I may add a tied bag with the bottle. By the way I am also trying a pistachio version using almond essence instead of the rosewater. I also used more turkish delight than mentioned to bump up the taste.

I made this last Friday and am hoping its ready for Saturday to take to a friend's house. It definately looks offputting at the moment - like Elaine says, i definatley wouldn't present it with turkish delight in the bottom (it looks a bit like chicken when the bright pink has dissolved!) but so far smells nice and i think if its strained before use it will be just fine. I'm sticking with it! will post at the weekend when its used - i may add some more rose essence as it wont have had had the full month to settle. fingers crossed!

Oh dear, was thinking of making this but might wait until Elaine comes back with the verdict!

has anyone made this yet? i made some last weekend and so far it looks terrible. the turkish delight has a film of what looks like cotton wool over it so no way will i be adding to the drink to give out, I think i will just tie a bag of turkish delight to the side, if it does come back transparent - at the moment it looks yellowy! not sure about this one I must say.
