DIY: Pink Grapefruit Infused Vodka

Posted by Kelly

We are on the third of my four holiday infusions, are you making one each day?!

You simply can't go wrong with a citrus infused vodka. It's great for a straight up martini, lemon drop, summer cooler or citrus drop like this....(yum!)

I am especially looking forward to using this infusion in a fresh squeezed greyhound.

What You'll Need:
- 1 Large Pink Grapefruit
- 750 ml Vodka
- 1 Large Glass Jar or 2 Quart Jars
(the grapefruits take up a lot of space)

Step 1: Cut grapefruit into slices, leaving the skin on.

Step 2: Put grapefruit slices in jar(s).

Step 3: Add vodka to jar and seal tightly.

Step 4: Let stand at room temperature for 1 week and shake gently occasionally.

Step 5: Taste for preferred flavor intensity and allow to sit for another week if needed. 

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

Just like the other recipes, I recommend a cute label, including a recipe, and a pretty bow!
