This recipe makes a great, home made, flavored vodka. Tastes awesome out of the freezer, or with a splash of tonic, or club soda, or even with some Orange Juice. Needs to sit in the fridge about a week for the full flavor to permeate. Oh and use a decent vodka, (no cheap bar stuff) but you dont' have to go crazy, with Van Gogh or Belvedere or anything. (I estimated the servings, we don't keep track of that sort of stuff) Cooking time does not include 'resting' in the fridge.
