Let’s get creative with our cocktails! We just tried out our own flavor-infused vodka and it was amazing! We were feeling particularly zippy so created a Jalapeño Infused Vodka. Watch here for the Blackberry Smash recipe on Friday, but for now here’s all you need to do to get ready:
1 ½ cups vodka
2 Tbsp. Olive Tree Jalapeno Olive Oil (you can substitute for any olive tree flavor)
- Whisk together vodka and olive oil in a small saucepan. Cook over low, stirring often, 20 minutes (do not let mixture boil.)
- Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until oil solidifies on top, about 8 hours. (May be frozen up to 24 hours.) Skim oil from top, and discard.
- If necessary, place vodka mixture in a fine wire-mesh strainer over a bowl, and strain, discarding any solids. Store infused vodka in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
