Making infused vodkas couldn’t be easier. And I mean that literally. All you need is vodka and your choice of flavorings. Yep, hard stuff. Go ahead and pick up a few bottles of your favorite vodka the next time you’re out and about and get to experimenting with flavors. Not only are they great to have on hand these also make great hostess gifts, housewarming gifts, un-birthday gifts, birthday gifts. You get the picture. If you’re super crafty (I am not, Pinterest just likes to make me feel like I am sigh) you could make your own printable labels to go with. How fancy is that?
Since apples happen to be falling off trees at the moment they’re a perfect option and they also happen to be perfect paired with cinnamon. And vodka. You can make as much or as little of this recipe as you like. The longer you leave those apples and cinnamon socializing with the vodka the stronger the flavor will be. It doesn’t take a math genius to know that the less time means more subtle flavor. We like options.
The longer it sits the darker the color will get. Because I know you’re visual like me, the shot glass pictured above has been mingling in my cupboard for about 4 months now and is just about perfect according to my taste buds. My taste buds also like it served on the rocks.
How do you like yours?
- 1/2 apple - washed, cored and sliced
- 1 -2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 cup distilled vodka
- Into a canning jar (or the like) place apple slices and cinnamon.
- Pour vodka over apples and cinnamon sticks making sure they're completely submerged with vodka.
- Place lid onto jar and store in a cool dark place.
