Infusion of taste.

I've taken up a new hobby: Making vodka infusions. That is all. [Edited to add] Flavors and methods to come, perhaps with a little help from my yeasty friend!

Just add what you'd like to vodka in a sealable glass container. My first batch is in little Pellegrino bottles I've cleaned out, just so I can decide what I like and would want to make more of.

So, pour a really clean-tasting vodka (I like Smirnoff--not pricey like Grey Goose, better tasting than most of the cheap stuff) and add the herbs, spices, fruit or whatever you'd like to the bottle. Seal it up, leave it in a cabinet for pretty much as long as you want, since the vodka would be a preservative. Agitate it once in a while. When you're ready, strain out the infused vodka (if you want) and use it in cocktails, or store in the freezer.

Why didn't I think of that? I love flavored vodka. Van Gogh makes a pineapple that I still want to try. Mmmmmm... I'll have to attempt your recipe, though.

I was in BJs around Christmas (in NJ some of them sell alcohol, YAY!)and a Russian woman bought a case of 750ml Smirnoff to infuse for Christmas gifts for 2005. She said she's been doing it for years and it's what all her friends want as gifts. "Vodka Infusions by Sid"
