The gifts that keep on giving…

Infused liquors! Why not?

Choose your liquor and choose your flavor.  I did apple cinnamon whiskey ( per Donna G!) and vanilla vodka!

Clean your jars ( I sterilized mine) and add the ingredient for flavor.  Pour liquor over and put the lid back on. Shake it! And then shake it some more…3-5 times a day for about 3-5 days! Store in a cool, dark place.  Go here for more detailed instructions!

Pretty much the same thing for these babies! Choose your flavors, bottles, and olive oil. I did garlic and rosemary.  Boil the oil for about 1-2 minutes just until warm. Then let the oil cool for about 5-7 minutes.  Place ingredients in bottle first and then pour over the oil. Let it sit to infuse about 2 weeks in a cool dry place! You can also place it in the refrigerator.

Good gifts for yourself or the holidays. My friend Hilda took home one last night!!

  1. hi there. to be honest, i did this post so long ago, i am not sure. probably bulleit or just a good old jim beam. anything you like will work. as for apple, i would use something good for baking like pink lady or honey crisp so the apple will hold up.

  2. i am not for certain, there are many different thoughts on this. depending on sterilization of your bottles, percentage of alcohol, etc. i would say 3 months maybe. you could also probably dig out the ingredient and transfer the vodka to another sanitized bottle.

  3. thanks! the jars are just jamming jars. the bottles are actually small glass club soda bottles. i save them, take off the label, and cork them with corks i found at cost plus! i save a lot of jars and bottles i find interesting.
