Homemade Ginger (Kalafut) Recipe

From correspondent Ben Kalafut

I've found that a slight modification to the ginger liqueur recipes out there produces a delightfully smooth result.

I'm thinking also that this liqueur might make a tasty glaze or addition to a pan sauce for chicken.

Combine ginger, water, sugar and molasses in a saucepan; bring to boil. Remove from heat, let cool; transfer to container and add vodka. Stir quickly to mix ingredients thoroughly and store in a cool, dark place for one month.

Rack, filter, and bottle. The cordial is now ready for serving.

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
1 cup = 8 ounces = 236ml
1 quart = 32 ounces = 944ml
1 tbsp (tablespoon) = 1/2 ounce = 15ml
1 fifth = 25.6 ounces = 750ml
1 tsp (teaspoon) = 1/6 ounce = 5ml
1 pint = 16 ounces = 472ml
