Zaide Reuven’s Esrog Schanpps

We can’t sell you any schnapps but we can certainly tell you how to make it . . . using Zaide Reuven’s Esrogim of course . . .

You will need:

  • 3 Zaide Reuven’s Esrogim
  • 3 cups vodka
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar (can use brown sugar instead)

Remove zest / rind (yellow outer layer) and place this in a quart jar. Keep the white peel for candied esrog.

Add two cups of vodka and close lid tightly. Store in a cool dark place (eg refrigerator) for at least two days, more usually 7 – 30 days. Add the sugar. Shake until dissolved. Add remaining vodka and stir until clear. Close jar and store in a cool dark place for 6 weeks. Filter through cheesecloth to clarify.
