Homemade Ginger-Honey Liqueur (Vargas and Gulling) Recipe

Miscellaneous Untried Recipes

This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.

From Cordials From Your Kitchen by Pattie Vargas and Rich Gulling:

Bring honey and water to boil, boiling for 3-5 minutes. Skim off any foam that rises to the surface (this is natural beeswax). Add ginger root and lemon zest. Boil for 4 more minutes. Remove from heat and stand until just warm. Strain out solids. Transfer liquid to a clean 1-quart container. Add Whisky, store in a cool, dark place for 1 month. Rack or filter into final container, age for 2 more weeks before serving.

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
1 cup = 8 ounces = 236ml
1 quart = 32 ounces = 944ml
1 tbsp (tablespoon) = 1/2 ounce = 15ml
1 fifth = 25.6 ounces = 750ml
1 tsp (teaspoon) = 1/6 ounce = 5ml
1 pint = 16 ounces = 472ml
