This is something I found in a book a few years ago, tried and loved. It gets a nice pepper taste over time. It is great for Bloody Marys or male bonding. I understand you can vary the alcohol and the pepper to whatever fits, like rum and habaneros, brandy and bird peppers. I always have a bottle in the freezer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour a shot or two of vodka out for yourself to compensate for the space the peppers will take.
  2. Cut a slit into each pepper. Remove seeds and inner tendril. Try to keep the peppers looking pretty.
  3. Insert each pepper into the bottle. Close bottle and store for at least 1 month if 80 proof, 3 months if 90 proof, the longer the better.
