let's make holiday inspired infused vodka!

hey guys!

I've been wanting to try infusing my own vodka for a long time now. This summer, Daniel and I had high hopes of making a million different flavours! Well, we didn't make one. I wanted to make some festive flavours so obviously I chose gingerbread & apple spice!

Apple Spice Infused Vodka

  • 3/4 apple, cut into chunks
  • 3 mandarin orange slices
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp allspice berries
  • 1/2 tsp whole cloves
  • 1/2 tsp star anise (mine were slightly crushed, alternatively you could use 1 whole star anise)

Gingerbread Infused Vodka
  • 1 stick of cinnamon 
  • 1 strip of lemon zest
  • 2 inch piece ginger, cut into chunks
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla 
  • 1/2 Tbsp molasses

To infuse, add all ingredients to a large jar, top with vodka & seal. Give it a little shake. Let sit for 24 - 72 hours, tasting periodically until to your liking. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain your vodka. Enjoy! 

I'd love to hear what flavours of vodka you'd infuse this winter holiday!
