DIY: Ginger Infused Vodka

Posted by Kelly

Finally, the last infusion of December, a Ginger Infused Vodka. I was inspired to make this infusion by my sister, a big fan of fresh ginger, and I think it will add a spicy, unique flavor to cocktails. Plus ginger is healthy for you right?

What You'll Need:
- 1 c. Fresh Ginger
- 750 ml Vodka
- 1 Glass Jar

Step 1: Peel and slice ginger.

Step 2: Add ginger to jar.

Step 3: Add vodka to jar and cap tightly.

Step 4: Let stand at room temperature for 48 hours, shaking gently once or twice a day.

Step 5: Taste for the preferred flavor intensity and allow to infuse up to 2 more days if needed.

Step 6: Strain vodka into original bottle then cap, label and refrigerate until ready to use. 

I hope these infusions were fun to make and inspired some "do it yourself" Christmas gifts!

Coming soon, a fabulous holiday cocktail...Pomegranate Martini!
