Update : Gooseberry Eau de Vie


decided today to check in on a project from last summer. not quite a year in (11 months), and
the gooseberries have pretty much given up everything they have to the eau de vie. its hard to
tell from this photo, but the once scarlet berries are now looking like small pale shallots. all of
the lovely red you see is the brandy itself. honestly, this photo doesn't do the red justice.

now the biggest dilemma will be : how to enjoy this properly?

Nice! I had a good drink recently made with a rhubarb liquor -- I think the other ingredients were club soda, simple syrup, and lemonade. But have a sip of it straight first!

Yet another reason to buy rhubarb this weekend. Thanks Sally!
