Loquat Liqueur

It's loquat fruit time again in Austin, and this year, I discovered - vis a vis the Lee Bros. - a recipe for making loquat liqueur. (Don't even ask me how many times I've spell-checked the word "liqueur." What a strange one.)

The recipe is pretty straight forward:
Wash some loquats and stuff them in a jar with a lid. Fill said jar with vodka (I used Dripping Springs). Wait for at least one week and up to a year. Keeps for a couple of years.
I'm probably going to lean toward waiting a year. So perhaps this time next year, I'll be experimenting with loquat liqueur drinks. I'm thinking a splash of the loquat liqueur with some ice and soda water would be a refreshing springtime treat.

Here's a recipe for a nice breakfast treat made with loquats.

Seems y'all have a yearly drink recipe - I LOVED your dilly vodka too! So I am certainly trying this drink (I am not even gonna try and remember how you spelled the liq. word!) ;)

Ah! Bewashu! Fruit liquor. I have always meant to try this with my lemons. Limoncello. I still have Meyers on my tree but no Vodka. May have to remedy that. Let us know what it tastes like.

If I can pry a few ripe loquats away from the squirrels, I'll give this a try. Sounds good!

We did this with calamondins a few years ago and I think loquats are in our future!
