One of the easiest ways to add some flair to your cocktails is with infusions. They are usually really easy, with time doing most of the work. I have a huge list of infusions I want to try, but when I saw pears on sale, this Chamomile Pear infused vodka moved to the top of the list.
When adding pears to your grocery list, get an extra one so at the same time you can make Spiced Pear Liqueur!
Since it is getting towards that time of the year, I was paging through Winter Cocktails: Mulled Ciders, Hot Toddies, Punches, Pitchers, and Cocktail Party Snacks for some ideas, and settled on their infusion section.
Fall and Winter Cocktails
There were several others that are on my list: Serrano-Lime Infused Tequila and Celery-Black Pepper Infused Vodka both sound wonderful. Infusing is one of my favorite ways to turn any cocktail into a seasonal cocktail.
I found the dried chamomile flowers at Earth Fare, but you can get them online, Dried Chamomile Flowers.
Choosing Vodka to Infuse
Whenever, I am doing small batch infusions (I almost always cut the recipes in half), I try to find a new-to-me vodka. This time I decided to try Picker’s Vodka from Tennessee.
They had a blood orange infused vodka that sounded wonderful and I am definitely going to give it a try, but for my infusion I settled on their plain vodka.
Chamomile Pear Infused Vodka
This is so easy to make. You simply add your pear and your dried chamomile flowers to a jar. Shake to mix and store in a cool dark place, shaking the jar a few times each day. Start test tasting on day three, it usually takes between 3-5 days!
This makes a delicate, interesting flavored vodka. It adds such an elegant touch to your cocktails!
