Infused Vodka Flavors to Make at Home

Introduction:Making a batch of infused vodka at home is so simple and much cheaper than buying a bottle of fancy flavored vodka. Just get a large bottle or jar with a nozzle at the bottom (like the kind you might use to make innocent lemonade), add some fruit or vegetables, let it sit and voila - infused vodka to be used for the most delicious cocktails ever. The different flavored vodkas you can make are only limited by your imagination.

The below ideas for infused vodka will infuse a half gallon of vodka. If you'd like to make less, just cut the ingredients in half. But, if you like a stronger flavored vodka, just add more.

  • 01

    Cucumber and Lime Infused Vodka

    Peel three cucumbers and add to the infused vodka bottle. Add the peel right in as that's where most of the flavor will come from as your vodka sits for two weeks. Slice just one lime and squeeze the juice into the infused vodka bottle before dropping in the lime pieces.

    Use your infused cucumber and lime vodka to make the best and freshest tasting vodka martini cocktail ever. Just add a bit of vermouth, shake until the martini shaker is frosty and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a fresh cucumber peel. Just the right drink to sip on a warm summer day.

  • 02

    Tomato and Hot Pepper Vodka

    If you love bloody mary's, this is the infused vodka for you! Fresh tomatoes work best so you might have to wait until your summer garden starts producing its fruit.

    Quarter four tomatoes and drop into the infused vodka jar. Slice a jalapeno pepper (or, if you like a really hot vodka, use a habanero pepper). If you prefer a lighter hot flavor, get rid of the pepper seeds and the white ribs inside - that's where the heat resides in hot peppers.

    Let the vodka steep two weeks before straining the alcohol. Use as the base for the best bloody mary cocktail in the world. Just add a bit more tomato juice, a splash of Worcestershire, some horseradish and a stalk of celery or a few olives. Bottoms up!

  • 03

    Pineapple Infused Vodka

    This might be the most delicious of all infused vodkas. Just slice a whole pineapple in 1" pieces and remove the skin. Drop into the infused vodka jar and let sit just one week; don't allow to sit longer as the pineapple will go bad even though it's sitting in vodka.

    Strain the vodka off after the one week and sip straight or on the rocks. No need to add anything else - pineapple infused vodka is THAT good. DO NOT try to eat the pineapple though - it'll kill ya and it doesn't taste very good.

  • 04

    Cinnamon and Nutmeg Infused Vodka

    This mix is fun for sipping too. For the best results, drop in three to five full sized cinnamon sticks. Crack a full nutmeg with a hammer and drop it into the jar. Allow to steep for three weeks or so before straining. Place a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg vodka over ice or mix with a bit of Bailey's Irish Cream for a Black Russian with an interesting twist.

  • 05

    Lemon Infused Vodka

    Lemon is one of the most pure flavors you can use to infuse vodka. Just quarter two lemons and squeeze juice into your infused vodka jar before dropping the fruit right in. Similar to lime, the lemon peel will add the most flavors as the oil seeps from the skin into the vodka. Use your lemon infused vodka to make a lemon drop shooter cocktail (rim the top of the glass with sugar) or a lemon martini garnished with a mint leaf.




Final Thoughts

All infused vodka should be strained off and then stored in the refrigerator - it will go bad if left unrefrigerated.
