This is great added to soups or even to pasta dishes.

Directions

  1. Wash and dry the basil leaves and combine with about a third of the vodka in a small bowl.
  2. Use a wooden spoon to stir and bruise the leaves to release their natural oils and flavor.
  3. Add this mixture to the remainder of the vodka and store in an airtight container for about 24-48 hours in a dark, dry place.
  4. Stir or shake several times to circulate the leaves.
  5. Strain through cheesecloth into a bottle and store, ready for use.
