infused vodka

infused vodkas-019

I’m more than a little excited to share this holiday gift idea with you today. Did you know that you could infuse your own vodka? Yes, you totally can! What I love about this idea is that there are endless combinations of flavors that you can put together to create your very own vodka varieties. Then you can tote yourself as a super creative mixologist and impress all your friends.

That’s always fun.

The process is very easy, and I’m sharing the recipes and full instructions for my infused vodkas (citrus rosemary, cranberry orange spice and candy cane vodka) over on My Baking Addiction today. You don’t want to miss it!

While I was working on this post, my husband kept teasing me that I was making moonshine on the top of the fridge. It was admittedly a little weird to have a bunch of mason jars filled with vodka and infusers all over the top of my fridge, but trust me, it’s not the weirdest thing that has happened in my kitchen.

After you have your vodkas packed full of flavor, you can bottle them in cute, fancy bottles, or even sweet little mason jars. Little stamped gift tags finish these spirit bottles off and have them all ready for gifting this holiday season. I’m pretty obsessed with these alphabet rubber stamps and will be using them on pretty much everything I can get my hands on this year. So cute.

Not sure what to do with your newly infused vodka? Try out a Candy Cane Martini!

    i can make the vodka part, but it’s making those adorable labels that leave me dumbfounded. I don’t know how you do that – they are absolutely gorgeous and so creative!!! Beautiful photos as well.

      The tags were very simple to make! I just used pre made tags from Amazon and some letter stamps for the text. You can also use any store bought gift tag with your very own handwriting to make it even more special. I, unfortunately, have terrible handwriting and can never rely on that 😉 If you decide to try the vodka, I would love to know how it turns out! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    Love infusing my own vodka! I’m pretty boring though, I usually just stick with some kind of citrus. I’m loving the candy cane infused flavor combo! So creative.

      Yes! The candy cane is super festive and makes a mean martini. I’m going to be posting about it soon. I need to try a lemon version next, for sure. I might hold out for some Meyer Lemons 🙂

    What an amazing gift idea! Although I think I’d keep this all to myself!

    I’ve been making infused vodkas for a couple of years for gifts. Cranberry is gorgeous and just terrific with some champagne but Limoncello is my all time favorite. It’s a bit of a pain since you use just the rinds but the results are SO good! I love the idea of citrus and rosemary; I’ll have to try that!

      Hi Barb! I love the idea of using the cranberry with champagne – how festive! I have definitely been bitten by the infusing bug and want to try several more flavors. Limoncello sounds perfect for winter! Thanks so much for stopping by!
