DIRECTIONS

  • Use a large, clean glass container (at least 1.5 liter) with an airtight lid for your infusion.
  • Save your original bottle as you will need it to strain the infused mixture into.
  • Strain with a wire mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter or cheesecloth.
  • Place the chili's in the large glass container, add vodka and cap tightly.
  • Let stand at room temperature for 48 hours, shaking gently once or twice a day.
  • Taste for the preferred flavour and heat intensity, allowing it to infuse for up to 2 more days if needed. No longer though or it will turn bitter.
