Dandelion and burdock root are bitter herbs that are often paired together, and they are both excellent for digestion.
2 tbsp dried dandelion root
2 tbsp dried burdock root
1 tbsp dried sweet orange peel
360ml vodka or another neutral spirit
- Combine the herbs and spirits in a pint-size jar. Cover the jar with a lid and shake to mix well.
- Put the jar in a cool, dark place to infuse for 4 to 6 weeks. Strain out the herbs using a fine-mesh sieve.
- Drink up to 30ml before or after a meal to help aid digestion or to calm an upset stomach.
Tip: This is pleasantly bitter, and the addition of the orange peel makes it perfect for turning into an aperitif cocktail. Combine it with sparkling water and a splash of orange or grapefruit juice for a lovely drink before a meal.
