Thanks so much for the recipe.
I first had Boilo just yesterday at a Lithuanian friend's house, made from his Grandmother's recipe. As I didn't have his, I made this recipe pretty much as written except to adjust the proportions as I had a fifth of grain alcohol and not half a gallon. I also squeezed the citrus fruits and really mashed them into the mixture to release their full flavor. From some other sources, I let the honey mixture simmer for an hour to fully bring out the flavors from all of the ingredients. It is delicious!
I used 1 lb honey and only a pint of 150 proof Grain Alcohol.
Good coal cracker drink, it warms the heart!
