Rather than putting the leaves in my tea, I decided to make a syrup using vodka and water. Here's the recipe I used:
- 1 teaspoon of dried stevia leaves
- 4 ounces of vodka (the cheap stuff will do)
- 8 ounces of water (used to dilute the syrup after infusion)
Strain the vodka through cheesecloth (I use double netting like the kind grandmothers use to make tutus for their granddaughters).
Add pure water to the strained mixture and pour into dark bottles. Store in refrigerator for up to three months.
