After a night of not much sleep since our smoke alarms went off at 4:45 am I thought I'd do some infusing this morning. If you're wondering, the house is fine. Since all of our smoke alarms are wired into each other if one has gone bad it sets all of them off on all three floors.The one upstairs had gone bad & had to wait till the middle of the night to set all the others off.
I started out with 2 1.75 liter bottles of Vodka & 1 1.75 liter bottle of Bourbon.I got some jars ready & tried to figure out what to make. The vodka was made into 1 Qt.Peppercorn Vodka for Bloody Mary's, 1Qt. Rosemary Vodka (it sounds strange, but is very good) & 1 1/2 Gal. Lime Infused Vodka. The Bourbon was turned into Caramel Apple Bourbon.
Caramel Apple Bourbon
3 shredded Granny Smith apples
1/2 of a 12.2 oz.bottle Salted Caramel syrup (found in the coffee isle)
2 Cinnamon Sticks
1 1/2 Gal Jar
Shred the apples, put in the jar, add syrup & cinnamon sticks & then fill jar with Bourbon.
Let set in a dark place for 5 days, then strain into a clean jar. Store in a dark cabinet & use within 1 yr. Don't throw out the apples. Make an adult ice cream topping.
I have strained the peppercorn vodka. 1 day of infusing is more than enough to get the flavor. Anymore time will make it way too spicy.
