    I love this thread NC~!!!!!! You always have the best ideas...they usually involve liquor and I can appreciate that! I think I'm going to make some of these for the holidays...

    Question...for a recipe that calls for vodka as a base, do I need to use premium vodka, or will middle of the road or rotgut work since they are being infused...


    Actually when I infuse it is the only time I do not use premium vodka. I use Smirnoff 100 proof.

    The two most frequently used alcohols are 180 to 190 proof pure grain alcohol and 80 to 100 proof vodka. Pure grain alcohol is a neutral sprit which will be diluted half and half with water. It has no taste of its own to interfere with the liqueur flavorings. When purchasing a pure grain alcohol, you do not have to be concerned with which brand to buy; all are equal.

    Vodka, like pure grain alcohol, is a neutral spirit and is an ideal base in liqueur making. However, there are differences from brand to brand. The purifying and refining processes of the distiller determines the end quality. Good vodka should be colorless, aromaless and have no real taste of its own. Take time to find the smoothest vodka in your price range. Either 80 or 100 proof vodka is acceptable.
