Ordinary prunes will help you turn vodka or moonshine into an original drink. Tinctures based on it have long been famous for their excellent soft taste, you just need to be able to prepare them correctly. We will look at how to make a tincture of moonshine, vodka or alcohol on prunes at home. The recipes are very simple and do not require rare ingredients.

For the preparation of tinctures, both store-bought and home-made prunes are suitable, there is no fundamental difference here. When choosing in the store, I do not recommend buying too black fruits (they are treated with glycerin to increase the shelf life) and light brown ones, which were doused with boiling water before drying. Some of the useful properties and aromatic substances in them are irretrievably lost.
