Infused Vodka Recipes

I
instead of showing up to this year’s Thanksgiving party or Christmas party re-gifting last years presents in a never-ending circle of useless trinkets, imagine how much street credit you would get by creating— and gifting— a custom infused vodka blend, instead.   And while expensive infused vodkas may be flying off liquor-store shelves, making your own can be a whole lot tastier, more creative—and a hell of a lot more fun.  Enjoy these Infused Vodka Recipes to give you a head start for you to begin with.  We also highly suggest starting with Three Hunters Vodka for the Paleo Vegans who appreciate great flavor and ethical, sustainable, agricultural practices.

Don’t forget that the goal is to create something magnificent and that there are no rules. So feel free to lengthen times, add or substitute ingredients as your clever palate sees fit.
