    In the back garden of our new house we have a nice plum tree which, over the weekend, we have relieved of all it's fruit. We had a nice plum crumble on Sunday but really I'd like to do a bit more with them then just stick them in a pie.

    What I would like to do is to make some kind of plum drink, whose main constituent needs to be alcohol :laugh:

    I'm not into making wine and was thinking of just sticking a load of plums in a load of vodka or something and leaving it to 'brew'

    Never done this before so, what do I need to do?

    Any suggestions?

    have you got a blender??

    Vodka Plum Smoothie!!! It's instant!! :devil:


    Plums, Natural Yoghurt, Vodka !!!


    Get as many plums as you can fit in the blender.... a big pot of yoghurt.... and as much Vodka (Absolut Vanilla is the best! ) as you think you can handle.... then blend until it looks like runny yoghurt.... if it's too thick to drink... just keep adding booze! :rolleyes:

    A good smoothie (just about any fruit works.... Strawberry/Bluberry are the best) can handle frightening amounts of Vodka... :devil:

    "I find it best to avoid watery fruits such as Melon, as they dilute the alcohol"

    I like the way he thinks.... :D

    You could try the Polish Spirit you can get in many delicatessens. It's really strong - around 80% and is used to make fruit liquers. It adds little or no taste to the fruit it's added to.


    Note: My wifes cousins in Hungary actually distill there own plum brandy, which is wickedly strong.
