Infused Vodka


Sitting at My Side of the Bar this past weekend in one of my favorite “Gin Joints”, Tomfooleries on the K.C. Plaza

I always notice the many jars of infused Vodka. Now while infusing Vodka is not new to me I am always intrigued by the different ingredients for infusing Vodka used at many establishments and found on the internet.




I first learned about infused Vodka when I used to frequent the Capital Grill (also on the K.C. Plaza)

On both ends of the bar they had two gigantic glass jars filled with pineapple and Vodka. The result was their world famous Stoli-Doli a name contrived from Stolichnaya Vodka and Dole Pineapple which makes one fantastic drink. You let the pineapple infuse in the Vodka for about a week to ten days and then drain off and put in a container to keep refrigerated. You can them mix three parts of this infusion with one part triple-sec in a martini shaker and strain into a chilled martini glass and you have one very smooth martini.

However on this day I am going to concentrate on an infusion that we make for bloody mary’s on My Side of the Bar. The recipe follows and is very easy.

You can obtain infusion jars at many places, but my favorite is Infused Vodka.com

I recommend starting with a small jar (I actually own 5 different sizes to date) and work your way up depending on the type of infusion you really like.

Infused Vodka Recipe

Red Onion ½
Jalapeno Pepper 2 Small
Anaheim Pepper 1
Cerano Pepper ½
Red Pepper ½
Orange Pepper ½
Garlic Clove 2
Celery Stalk 3
Cherry Tomatoes 8
Heirloom (or any tomato) 1
Parsley Sprigs Several
Cilantro Sprigs Several
You can also add any other ingredients that you like. Some of my other favorite options depending on availability are, yellow tomatoes, habanero peppers (if you like hot) and dried peppers.

I cut up all the ingredients and layer in the jar and then fill with Vodka. I usually let this sit for a week while taking a shot or two out every day and pouring back in the top to aide mixing all the ingredients.

Then to make a great bloody here is my recipe

Bloody Mary, My Side of the Bar Style

1 Shot Infused Vodka
Dash or two of Lea & Perrins Worchester Sauce
Dash or two of Louisiana Hot Sauce
Splash of Kosher Pickle Juice
Tomato Juice (My favorite is, believe it or not Wal-Mart Brand)
½ Teaspoon Fresh Ground, Course Cut Horseradish
Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
Celery Salt to taste

There is not many weekend mornings I do not start off with one of these wonderful eye openers.

Other combinations I have infused

Vanilla Vodka with Fresh Cherries
Watermelon, Cantaloupe, and Honey Dew Mellon
Fresh Plums
Fresh Pomegranate

And to be featured in a future posting, Jolly Rancher (you pick the flavor)

Cheers
