Infusing Liquor is so Easy
Do you have a hobby? Gardening maybe? Crochet? Watching Nascar? I have lots of hobbies. I collect hobbies just like I collect buttons...hmm...could collecting buttons be a hobby? I have to include infusing things in my long list of hobbies. I love, love, love infusing alcohol. Perhaps you guessed that from my previous Spicy Cucumber Gin, Pineapple Jalapeno Infused Tequila, and Homemade Ginger Liqueur.
I am always on the lookout for new flavor combinations, new infusions. Whenever I get a new cookbook or cocktails book, the first thing I do is bookmark all the infusions! You get such bang for you buck with infusions. You start with a few simple ingredients, add in a little time, and you basically create magic.
I am all for tasks where time does most of the work! I am intrigued by combinations that I never thought of. Like this Rose Infused Vodka from Winter Cocktails. This is the same book that suggested the Chamomile-Pear Infused Vodka mentioned above. For the Rose-Infused Vodka, they said that you could make it with gin or vodka and as a variation you could add 2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns.
Rose Infused Vodka
Since I wanted the flavor of the roses to shine through, I chose vodka, though after tasting it, I think it would also add a different and interesting flavor to gin. I have plenty of rose petals, since I bought these Culinary Grade Rose Petals, so I will definitely try it with gin. I loved this rose-infused vodka! It has a soft floral flavor that I think will be perfect in all kinds of cocktails.
