DIRECTIONS

  • Before you get started, make sure to read the label of your gin to check that it is made from or includes juniper berries. This is critical!
  • Put the raisins in a shallow glass container and pour enough gin into it to just cover the raisins.
  • Cover the container with cheesecloth and allow to stand until the raisins absorb the gin and the remaining liquid evaporates, about one week.
  • Each day, eat NINE of these "drunken" raisins.
  • I have read that it might take six weeks for this remedy to work, so be patient.
