Vodka is such a versatile base to start with since it absorbs flavors beautifully and infusing it with various flavors adds a great twist to regular cocktails.

How to Make Jalapeno Infused Vodka

  1. Simply add one sliced jalapeño pepper to a cup of  vodka.
  2. Glass jars with tight lids work best for infusing vodka. Once you’ve combined your jalepeno with your vodka, screw the lid on tight and give it a good shake.
  3. Allow the flavors to really marinate together. The longer you let sit, the stronger it’ll taste. I recommend letting it infuse for 8 to 24 hours.
  4. For a milder flavor, let it sit for about an hour.
  5. Once you’ve achieved your desired flavor you can strain the vodka with a mesh strainer and a funnel.
  6. Add to any number of delicious cocktail recipes.

    If I wanted to give the Jalapeño vodka as a Christmas gift to friends, how long would it last in the bottle I gave to them in?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I would have to try it to give you a solid answer. That being said, if I were doing this, I would slice up at least six jalapeños for a jar of vodka. Then I would let it sit for at least 24 hours. And then I would remove all of the jalapeños and filter the vodka with a cheese cloth. Doing all that, I would suggest that they store the vodka in the freezer and it should be good to go.
