Hello everyone and welcome to another brand new Quick Bite from Nikoli's Kitchen! I know this is dropping in place of a normal episode, but I'm out of town as of this release visiting Rebecca's family in Virginia, and I didn't have the time to put together a recipe for a breakdown. Instead, I decided to talk about something that I absolutely love doing- steeping vodka! It's an incredibly simple process that will infuse your vodka with all sorts of strong or subtle flavors depending on your tastes for your use in any kind of cocktail you'd like. Please try out some of the variations I've done or make up your own! Whatever you do, have an absolutely beautiful week. I'll be back this Thursday with another Quick Bite, so stay tuned!

 

Featured Recipe for this Episode

4 c Tito's Handmade Vodka
1 large Ball Jar

Varieties I've made-

Jalapeño Ginger (Try this in a Moscow Mule!)
Raspberry
Green Apple
Apple & Cinnamon
Clementine
Cherry
Strawberry
Coffee (Whole bean coffee)
Vanilla (Use 8-10 vanilla beans, split and cut in half)

There's a lot of variation you can do when it comes to steeped vodka, but in general if you want a good amount of the flavor of whatever you're steeping, I'd recommend shaking/muddling it lightly periodically to release some of the juices or oils into the vodka and helping it infuse. You'll want to do 2-3 cups of your primary flavor, and then if you're adding anything stronger (like ginger or cinnamon), you'll want to add them in small amounts only, maybe only 1 T per jar. A little will go a long way.

Add whatever you want to steep to the jar and top with vodka. Shake vigorously and then store in the freezer for at least 3-4 weeks or longer. Shake or stir it periodically as well.
