It is time to start infusing berries for holiday martinis!
Have you ever wanted to try infusing your own liquor; but you were afraid you might mess it up and spend too much money on an experiment? Well fear not. We have been infusing for years with great success. You will only need a few household items, a base liquor and your infusing ingredients.
Fruits/flavors for Infusing:
cantaloupe, peach, strawberry, cherry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, pineapple, mango, vanilla bean, lemon, lime or grapefruit, fresh ginger, lemon-grass, herbs, lavender, nuts, garlic, chili peppers or coffee.
Don't use canned fruits.
Don't crush the fruits - this can cloud the vodka.
Use other bases: gins, bourbons and rums.
i did this last year with cranberries (and a strip of orange peel) in vodka...then when the vodka was done with the cranberries i used them for a cranberry version of upside-down cake. it was really good!ReplyDelete
I'll have to try this. My holiday crowd enjoys flavored vodkas!ReplyDelete
