Sea Buckthorn Schnapps

Ingredients:

Sea Buckthorn berries
Unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof)
Instructions:
Rinse the berries carefully. Leave them to dry in the shadow - on paper towel. Freeze them for a week or more. Use a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Fill the jar with frozen berries. Fill up with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% (80 proof). Steep for 2-3 months in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20C (64-68F). Shake lightly and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Store (age) for at least 6 months in a dark place at room temperature before serving. The longer you store it, the better it gets. Filter once more.
