Dandelion Aperitif

If you've ever had the French liqueur Chartreuse, this recipe may appeal to you. Just gather a whole bunch of dandelion flowers (the big early season blooms work best for this purpose). Place them in a large jar along with a half cup of sugar, a long strip of lemon peel, and the better part of a bottle of vodka. After two or three weeks, you can strain out the flowers, leaving you with a bottle of pleasant, herby tasting liqueur that will remind you of summer and give your heart a lift.
