Christmas Krupnik

1 cup honey
1 cup water
6 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
2-inch vanilla bean
dash of freshly grated nutmeg
3 inch piece of lemon peel, zest (yellow part) only
1 inch piece of orange peel, zest (orange part) only
2 cups vodka

Heat the honey, water and spices in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Watch pot carefully so it does not boil over. Cover, turn off the
heat and allow to steep for at least 20 minutes to half an hour.
Add the vodka and serve hot.

This recipe may be made in advance and reheated. It keeps very
well if strained and decanted.

It wouldn't be Christmas Eve in our family if I didn't make the
krupnik. Each year I bring back honey from any trips we take during
the year. The various types of honey give the krupnik subtle flavor
changes. Fabulous! Good for a cold or flu...or just a wintery

This drink takes the chill off winter. Very traditional Polish liquor for Christmas.
