Basil Infused Vodka

This is my first cocktail post...which is pretty ironic considering how much I adore booze. I have been pretty overwhelmed at work, so I haven't had time to do much other than soak some leaves in vodka. But HEY, it was delicious! I originally intended on making Bloody Mary's with this vodka (which I still want to try), but opted instead out of laziness to use diet ginger-ale to make a nice afternoon spritzer (don't judge me).

So this isn't really a recipe, but it is, in my opinion, still very useful information. Simply take a mason jar or any kind of glass container and add fresh basil leaves. Fill to the top with vodka and steep for 4 days or so. If you are like me and need to drink it right away, just add a little vodka to the basil in the jar, muddle it, and fill up the rest to enjoy insta-basil vodka! Bottoms up!


  1. I got to taste test and the basil really comes through- so fresh and herby with the gigngerale!
