Well here you go. This is my recipe which most folks say is pretty good.
2 qts Four Queens whisky
2 tbls caraway seeds
1tsp whole cloves
1 tsp allspice
8 oz honey
4 cinnamon sticks
1 to 2 qts ginger ale depending on how strong you want your finished product
Quarter fruit, squeeze and put in large pot with all ingredients EXCEPT WHISKY
Simmer and stir till fruit is soft and spices seem to have done their job.
Strain through cheese cloth or very fine strainer into another large pot. This gets tricky sometimes so be careful.
Add whisky, stir, bottle, and store. I leave mine at room temp. Gets better from the second day on. It may separate and look ugly but just shake it up before using.
To enjoy simply shake, pour into your size glass, and heat. 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave for a shot. You may also put in on the coal stove to keep warm in a pot but do not LET IT BOIL. Never, ever LET IT BOIL. It may CATCH FIRE or evaporate all the alcohol. Make a batch now so you can adjust for next Christmas Holiday. Hope you enjoy.
Note: I like to use Grolsh flip top beer bottles for bottling. They look so nice for the Holidays. You can even put a ribbon on and give as a gift. Give me a PM and let me know if you like it.
