Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Remove from heat, and strain the liquid into a large pot. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Slowly pour the grain alcohol into the honey mixture, and stir to combine. Pour into bottles, and cap; refrigerate until use. Serve gently warmed in shot glasses.

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!
