These are easy to make and can be used so many different ways to suit your tastes.
These are based on using 1 1/2 cups vodka for each flavour. This saves you money from going out and buying it at the liquor store. I know, I have done this. Besides, it’s fun to do.
- 1/2 cups vodka
- 1 star anise
- 1 dried red chile
- 2 cardamom pods
Place in a jar with airtight seal and store in a dark, cool place for 1 day. Strain into chilled glasses and enjoy. This is a little fiery. Just add a touch of gingerale and crushed ice.
Store in a sealable jar. Store in a cool, dark place for 2 days. Strain into chilled glasses and enjoy. To raise the bar, add a touch of tonic and a wedge of lime and some crushed ice. So refreshing.
- 1 1/2 cups vodka
- 4 coffee beans
- 2 tbsp. toasted hazelnuts
Store in a airtight sealable jar in a cool dark place for 3 days. Strain and pour into chilled glasses.
To up the ante on this one, add a splash of heavy cream, a little simple syrup and some crushed ice. Wow!
Remember, you made it and now you can let your imagination take over. Come up with some that you might like. Enjoy!
