Gin (but not tonic) brioche

This is a brioche loaf enriched with lots of eggs and butter, and with the aromas that take part of a Gin&Tonic (lemon or orange peel, ground coriander, ginger, nutmeg, black pepper, cinnamon ...). It contains one tablespoon of Gin. Sourdough contains rye and barley flour. Some of this cereals are used in the destillation process.

I got the recipe in this website:

http://www.panarras.com/index.php/home/recetas/panes-enriquecidos/item/113-brioche-gt

For 1 kilo of brioche dough, ingredients are: 80 gr sourdough (40 gr wheat, rye and barley, 40 ml water), 360 gr high protein flour, 5 medium eggs (250-275 gr), 220 gr butter, 60 gr sugar, 10 salt and 6,6 instant yeast or 20 gr of fresh yeast. Orange flower water, Vanilla essence, lemon zest, 2 tbsp of spice mix (ground coriander, ginger, nutmeg, black pepper, cinnamon ...), 1 tbsp of your favorite gin, 50-100 gr of orange and/or ginger candied peel.

Have a nice day!
