Infusing Vodka at Home
If you find that this list does not excite you or if you would rather infuse your own flavor at home, then this paragraph talks about infused recipes that you can use. Right from fruits to spices, vodka can be easily infused at home. In order to do so, you will need the flavoring ingredient of your choice, like oranges, peaches, apple, anise, chili, etc., and some good quality vodka.
Choose a clean air tight jar. Clean the flavoring and pat it dry. Slice up the fruits or the herbs or spices really fine. If you are using berries, you will need to just lightly squeeze them so that the juice starts to release better. Spread the flavoring at the bottom of the jar and pour the vodka on top. The quantity of the vodka should be proportionate to the quantity of the flavoring. For example, if you take a liter of vodka, then you will need 2 fruits, a couple of fistfuls of spices, herbs, or berries and if you choose small fruits, then about 4 to 5 of those. Seal the jar and keep it away from the sunlight, preferably in the fridge.
In case of fruits, your drink should be ready within three days. However, spices and vanilla might take a week or 10 days to be infused thoroughly. Remember that the vodka should be poured on top of the flavorings and not vice versa, else the ingredients will float on the surface and will not get properly infused. Strain before use. It is best to try these recipes with a small amount if you are doing this for the first time. Practice makes perfect; so try till you get your taste and enjoy it with relish.
As you can see, there are plenty of flavors of vodka that are available in the market. Choose one that suits your taste or make the best one at home. Whatever you do, just remember to enjoy your drinks made with vodka to the fullest with family and friends. May this clear colorless drink fill your life with the colors of joy!
