Smells great; tastes great. It's the basis for some lovely cocktails, especially the Ginger Pear Martini which is posted here separately.
- Combine the vodka and ginger root in a clean container. (Reserve the vodka bottle for storing the infused vodka later.)
- Seal the container and store in a cool, dark place for 3 days, shaking occasionally. After 3 days, pour the vodka through a strainer and discard the ginger solids. Return the strained, infused vodka to its original bottle.
- Store infused vodka in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 1 month.
I loved the pepper addition to the vodka and the flavor it added to my cocktail this evening. Tonight's cocktail featured the vodka with a splash of cranberry juice and a squeeze of lime. Off to check out some other recipes. I let mine soak for 3 days and have decided to leave it for a 4th. Thanks Kate!
