DIY Witch Hazel
1 Cup distilled water
1 Tbsp. Witch Hazel bark/leaves
Vodka or other grain whiskey
Soak bark/leaves for 30 minutes in water. Then bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. Then remove from heat and let steep while it completely cools. Pour tea through strainer into glass jar. Has a 1-2 shelf life. Store in a dark cool area. If not using vodka or other whiskey store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Note** You can double this recipe to make more if your making for many people. Which is what I have done. I also used bourbon instead vodka for that is what I had. I also used just witch hazel leaves since I was out of bark. Simmer for only 10 minutes with leaves and 20 minutes for the bark.
