What better way to control your favorite invasive vine!

To start you'll need:

(1) 2-part canning lid
Unbleached cheesecloth
100-proof vodka, though 80-proof will do also
Honeysuckle blossoms!

Step 1: Collect the flowers

This is the fun part!

Pick the flowers from the Honeysuckle vine. These are the flowers that as a kid you probably pulled the stamen through the trumpet to get at the flower's nectar.

I prefer to pick the light golden flowers - the flowers range from white to gold. The older the flower - the more golden they become.

Remove all of the green parts prior to putting into a mason jar.

Step 3: Let rest

Let the blossoms rest in the spirit for one to two days on your counter.

The blossoms at the top will oxidize and turn a bit brown.

Step 5: Finished product

The receiving jar and refrigerate for up to one month. After that time the infusion begins to taste less floral.

Enjoy in a vodka tonic!
