mix it up {infused vodkas}

I have wanted to try my hand at homemade infused vodkas for a while now.  I did some vanilla before Christmas but was interested in experimenting a little with other flavors.  Earlier this week I concocted a few to try out today with some friends that came over for lunch.  I am very pleased with the results!

And, as indicated by my husband’s pint glass filled with homemade vodka-lemonade goodness, he is pleased too.

Knowing that I wanted to serve the vodka in some sort of lemonade-cocktail, I decided to try these flavors first:  Rosemary-Lemon, Vanilla-Grapefruit, and Raspberry-Lime.

Got my fresh ingredients.

Got my good quality vodka.  (This is the same vodka I used for my vanilla flavored infusion and the same vodka I add every time my vanilla vodka store depletes.)

Put it all into my mason jars and let it sit in a cool, dark spot for about a week.

I gave it a little tip-shake every couple of days.  At the end of the week I strained the vodka through some cheese cloth, wrapped up the solids in the cloth and gave it a good squeeze to get the rest of the liquid out…we don’t want any of that going to waste, now!

Then, I added a little to my lemonade.  My favorite is the Vanilla-Grapefruit.  The Raspberry-Lime was probably everyone else’s favorite.  I only say that because it is gone.

Now doesn’t that look refreshing?
