beaver drink

Inlägg av janno »

is there anybody who can suggest the recipe for beaver gland drink?
have heard quite a number of legends about the stuff, castoreum.
but the recipe seems to be a well kept secret.
google says, you swedes seem to have a tradition of "bäverhöjt".

I am experimenting now with the inside stuff of 4 beaver glands, put on a 1 litre of vodka.
will keep it for a couple of weeks and see if the result is drinkable.

anyway, it would be useful if somebody has a recipe to share, not to invent the bicycle again... in a private message, maybe?

I think that you should do as planned, stated in your question above and then,

within 3-4 weeks from now return to us with a message about the outcome,

last time I had a try at that stuff I could taste it in the back of my throat for more than a week aftervards.

Do handle with care.

I´ve seen recipes stating:

Cover the beaver- glands in vodka, let it soak for 1 month. Use this essence to flavour your shot.....

It seems that you have made 1 litre of bäverhojt - Enjoy :roll:

Enligt en viss klärvoajant forumist är jag inte ärligt intresserad, vilket tyvärr mitt track record tydligt pekar på.......

Jag har tydligen inte något Internet-vett....

I have no idea of how you make this kind of drink?

What I DO know is that it tastes absolutly horrible!! :shock:

And yes, the taste stay in you mouth far longer than you would like it to do :wink:

It´s like putting your tounge on frozen metal! You do it once, and then you no what happens and avoid it in the future! 8)

Den beska smaken av dålig kvalitet sitter i bra mycket längre än det låga prisets sötma!

Dry the glands in open air for a month or more.

Put it in vodka for another month or more. You only need one.

After some time the vodka will get a whisky-like color and can be used to flavour your vodka shots.

Amateurs drinks it pure.
