“I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade…and try to find someone who’s life has given them vodka…and have a party!”- Ron White
I was on Cupcakes and Cashmere and was inspired! Infused liquors! Sure, I have done all that before…raspberries make awesome vodka and even better vessels to put vodka in my belly. But! I had never thought using that as a gift. Brilliant!
Here is what I did… I bought a massive, I am talking big enough to comatose a couple of people, bottle of vodka. I sliced up a lemon, pulled off some fresh mint and opened up a pomegranate. I poured the vodka in mason jars, added a few slices of lemon, a couple sprigs of mint and some pomegranate seeds. I sealed them up and let them sit for four days. The vodka turned pink, and I strained it and poured it into individual bottles…to be served with soda and a slice of lime, or however the recipient likes to dress up their vodka!
