I brought some of my home-made Apple Cake drink to Lotusphere, and I had many people ask me how it is made. It is not hard at all, it just takes some time.
You need the following:
75 cl vodka (that is one regular bottle), and I recommend Absolut 40% (or even 50% if you want it stronger).
30 cl (that is about 10 fl oz) concentrated apple juice. I used one can of defrosted frozen juice concentrate.
3-4 tablespoons granulated sugar.
3 tablespoons of vanilla sugar. It can be purchased at the nearest IKEA in the US. You can also use vanilla extract.
3 sticks of cinnamon.
Gently heat up the apple juice on the stove. Stir in the sugar and vanilla sugar/flavor until it is all dissolved. Pour in a big bottle that is just over 1 liter, a little over a quart. I use a 2 quart Rubber Maid MixerMate bottle. Add the cinnamon sticks and then the vodka. Shake well.
For the next 7 days, shake once or twice a day. After 7 days, remove the cinnamon sticks. It is now ready to serve.
Whip some cream, and add plenty of vanilla sugar to it before you whip it. You want a nice strong vanilla flavor.
Pour the drink in shot glasses, but don't fill them to the rim. Then add some whipped cream on top, and it is ready to drink. Skål!

I am a victim of identity theft
Tue, Aug 12th 2014 7:53p Karl-Henry Martinsson This weekend I found out that I am a victim of identity theft. It is very unsettling, and feels like a total violation of my privacy.

Code snippet – DateClass
Mon, Jul 21st 2014 6:45p Karl-Henry Martinsson Here is a small Lotusscript class I wrote some years ago. I use it in a number of other classes where I need to use date functionality of different kind. For example, I have a class that communicates with a FoxPro database, using a COM object. Some of the methods in that class uses XML while […] [read] Keywords: domino
