I bottled the Slivovitz last night. I ended up making 1/3 cup of simple syrup and adding that in while I bottled it. From the very small sample I took, that seemed to be just the right amount.  The plums imparted a beautiful ruby red color to the vodka. It has a wonderful plum aroma.


The plums had turned an off white and didn’t look so good. I considered saving them for Drunken Plum Pudding but decided against it. As much as I hated throwing them out, if I made that pudding and it wasn’t a hit in my household, then I’d be throwing out even more food.  All in all, this was a simple recipe and fun to make.
