This honeysuckle season, try preserving the edible flowers by infusing them into a deliciously sweet and floral Honeysuckle Vodka.
Each spring, the woods behind our apartment turn white with honeysuckle blossoms, and it smells spectacular. If you, like me, grew up eating the tiny, minuscule drops of ‘honey’ from these flowers, you may have also wished that you could somehow, possibly, get a bunch of these dainty flowers together and miraculously collect all of the sweet nectar.
I don’t know how many thousands (or millions) of flowers it would take to harvest a jar of honeysuckle nectar, and I’m not even sure it would be possible. What I do know, however, is that you can preserve those delicious and edible flowers in vodka. In doing so, you’ll infuse the vodka with both the delicate floral scent of the petals AND the taste of the nectar. This Honeysuckle Vodka is a simple and easy way to savor these edible wildflowers.
