Infused Vodka Recipes

Go for maximum creativity on a minimum budget this Christmas with some flavoured vodka recipes. They look good, taste good and help to create a great atmosphere for any occasion! They also create a completely unique and very memorable gift, especially in these seasonal flavours.

Vodka is one of those products that acts as a kind of blank canvas. It responds well to a number of different flavours and the process takes very little time and effort to achieve. However some infusing time is necessary, so get ahead of the Xmas rush by starting your preparations now. The main equipment you will need is a substantial amount of good quality vodka, a large Mason jar for infusing in and some attractive bottles for presentation. Wares of Knutsford has some swing top bottles that are absolutely perfect for the job, and don’t forget you’ll need to think about labelling too – if you don’t fancy designing and printing your own, you can choose from a range of stylish and attractive adhesive labels from Wares.

Each recipe makes enough to fill a 1 litre swing top bottle. The method is the same for the cranberry orange, vanilla and rosemary citrus infused vodka recipes – simply combine all the ingredients in a large Mason jar and screw the lid on tightly. Leave to infuse in a cool, dark spot for two to four days, shaking the jar gently a couple of times per day. For the mint vodka, follow the same steps but only leave the mixture to infuse for 30 minutes. Strain the mixture through a clean muslin cloth to remove the solids and use a funnel to decant into your swing top bottle. Serve over plenty of ice either neat or with a mixer, or use them in baking! The high alcohol content of the vodka means these mixtures will keep for several months without spoiling.

Remember to sterilise your bottles before filling.
