Non-alcoholic "spirits"

I’m trying to make something better than seedlip.

August 15th 2020, “Summer Sun”

Pestle and Mortar


  • Zest of two lemons
  • One largish jalapeno
  • two lime tree leaves
  • 20g coriander seeds
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 16 oz water


  • toast the jalapeno seeds and coriander seeds

  • mince the rest of the jalapeno

  • macerate in a pestle and mortar

  • simmer ~15 mins, dissolving the sugar

  • chill

Tasting notes

Grassy and bright with a spicy aftertaste. Pretty good. Pleasant shot, good mixed with tonic.
