Homemade Fisherman's Friend Vodka

Weekend is around the corner, which is really great! I don't have many plans for the weekend, maybe a trip to the countryside, but the main thing is to release stress and relax with good food and drink. Maybe already on Thursday evening it's okay to write a post about an alcoholic drink. But remember to enjoy responsibly, if you decide to make this drink!

I have previously posted my Homemade Liquorice Vodka recipe and now I'm here to tell you that the Fisherman's Friend lozenges make a lovely vodka flavouring as well, especially the Salmiak (salty liquorice) flavoured ones. The vodka gets a really punchy flavour through this addition. These are the ingredients I used, but the amounts don't have to be that exact, it can be made stronger or sweeter. 

1 bag / 25 g Salmiak Fisherman's Friend
700 ml vodka
2-3 tbsp sugar

Pour a splash of vodka into a saucepan followed by the Fishermans. Heat them up and keep stirring until the lozenges have dissolved. Also add the sugar.

Let the mix cool down a bit and then mix the rest of the vodka into it.

Let it set in the fridge for a few hours and then serve cold.

Are you strong enough to try this?

Happy weekend everyone!

  1. Whaaaaat.... I thought these were medicinal and am gobsmacked to see them in vodka! Guess you will have the perfect tipple for a sore throat if I am right (but am beginning to wonder)

    1. Haha, yes they are basically throat tablets, but they do work in this combo, and don't you think that many spirits can be close to for example cough medicine. :)
      there shouldn't be any sore throats after drinking this! It actually is quite a popular drink in Finland, but we love our liquorice and put it everywhere.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
