My last blog post shared a cocktail in the spirit of Chinese New Year called a ‘Happy Dragon cocktail’ made with homemade Ginger-Infused Vodka. It’s a cinch and I’ll provide the instructions so you may do the same.
Homemade Ginger Infused Vodka
- 1/2 cup unpeeled ginger sliced (about 1/8th inch thick)
- 2 cups quality Vodka
- Place ginger and vodka in a sealable glass jar. Set in a dark location.
Check flavor after 7 days. If it is strong enough for your taste you can begin to use it. If you’d like a stronger flavor allow it to sit 3-4 additional days, taste and either use or allow to sit longer. NOTE: I did not remove the ginger from my Vodka once it was done though you can.
