Notes

The color of the petals will determine the color of your vodka.  I used all red and pink petals because I wanted a soft pink vodka.  Try yellow and orange for a more orange colored vodka. 
This will keep almost indefinitely, but the color and flavor will fade.  I try to use all my infusions within a year.
