    Hey Chili Heads -
    Summer's bounty is here
    Wanna make some Pepper Infused Vodka?
    It's easy.

    Bottle of Vodka
    3-4 Peppers (for a 750) more for larger bottles or to taste! :)
    Couple cloves garlic, peeled and I prefer to crack them w my palm to let the juices infuse better.

    Remove some Vodka from the bottle to make room for the peppers (and garlic if you're using it) - THIS IS A FUN PART!
    Cut the peppers in half (like a boat) and remove seeds - for Hotter end product leave in as much veiny material as possible.

    Cap the bottle and let stand at room temp for about a week.
    Sample for appropriate heat then use or remove peppers and place bottle into the freezer for later use.

    First time I tried this I went way too far. Even for me. Had to dilute it with lots more vodka. Whoa! All I used was habeneros and peppercorns. Excelent!

    You're right.
    You can ALWAYS add more and let it macerate a bit further.
  6. I did this last year for the first time. I used habeneros and peppercorns too. I WAY overdid it with the peppers! LOL. We used it for bloodys. I just use tobasco in my cocktails now.
