Chili-Infused Vodka

  • 375 ml vodka
  • 12 jalapeños
  • 2-3 tablespoons dried red chili flakes
  • 1 lime
  • 2-3 tablespoons peppercorns

Quarter all the fresh peppers. If you want to reduce the heat, seed and stem the peppers. You can really use any combination and quantity of peppers. Take your lime and make about twenty slits in the peel all over the lime.

Put all the ingredients into a clean, sterilized wide mouthed jar. Using a wide mouthed jar (like a mason jar) just makes it easier to get everything in and out. Put the vodka in a cool, dark place. Cover with a dish cloth if you like.

Every day, shake it. Let the vodka sit at least one week then strain the vodka through cheesecloth and enjoy in bloody marys or spicy martinis.

  • Yields: 300 ml spiced vodka (This is a lot, especially if you plan to dilute it. Hint: most humans will want to dilute it.)
  • Preparation Time: 1 week
