A recipe i found a long time ago, and none of my friends knew it when i did it... some where affraid ... but it was really cool.
! ! ! quite strong stuff anyway ! ! !
Take a bottle of vodka, 1 liter is cool, 2 liter is better
Take lots of small branches (those of the buds with many crystals (they have to be very dry))
Take sugar, or better: vanilla sugar
drink a little vodka when you begin... can't hurt
put all the branches in the vodka, the bottle should at least be half full with branches... (i'll post a pic when my friend brings the bottle back)
and put 1/2 inch of sugar in the bottle...
shake it like hell till the sugar has solved... it it solves too easily, but some back... the vodka has to be almost saturated with sugar. shake ... shake...
now put the bottle in some dark place and let it there for a month... you cab shake it from time to time (NOT OPEN IT)
after a month, open the bottle and add vanilla sugar... or vanilla and sugar... gives a nice taste (not much vanilla since vanilla has MUCH taste).
when that's done... shke it, and put the bottle back for another month in the dark...
the vodka should turn yellow, then green , then brown... the process dosnt stop... the vodka gets darker with time...
after 2 months of total it is a very good (and powerfull) drink... (i tested)
i'm letting a bottle for 4 months for the moment... you'll have some news...
a friend of mine tried the same with a dry white rhum... according to him it's even better (i did'nt tasted though :'()
have phun and don't forget to drink that moderatly as it's quite effective
