So I'm feeling a bit infusitious (It's a word! Look it up! It means in a mood to infuse...) and I have this cheap bottle of vodka and all these limes...

WHAT AM I TO DO!?

(Infuse things.)

This is a pretty quick and dirty infusion since my mother has taken the TV room and I'm relatively bored.

SO! I'm not going to waste time on procuring Fancy Things like a "glass jar" or "ten" limes. Instead I'm just going to chuck all the infusing stuff into the original bottle.

I got the recipe/ method This. Basically, it says, get 4 limes, zest them and get their flesh (But throw out the white stuff) and put it in the vodka).


Basically, I bought a $26 (or so) bottle of Ruskov vodka (It was the cheapest I could find! I know in the US you can buy vodka for like $7! HATE!). Here's a picture of the vodka without a label!

I then proceeded to get the limes. LOOK AT THE LIMES!

I then "zested" the limes with a cheese grater and cut the flesh out. I put cut the flesh as small as possible and shoved it in the original vodka bottle. When the bottle looked like it was about to fill up, I poured some of it into a glass. Eventually all the infusionary ingredients were added to the vodka bottle. I then put the extra vodka into another bottle along with some lime juice and rice. (Not sure why I put the rice in, but I feel it might absorb some of the crap flavours...)

TWO BOTTLES OF VODKA!?

The idea is that I'll leave it for a few days and then when the infusion is done, I'll recombine them and filter them out and put it back into the vodka bottle... I realise it was a bit like cheating using lime juice, HEY! SHUTUP!

Oh also I put a dash of salt in the vodka infusion. I believe this to counteract a bit of the burning flavours in the vodka. But this is based on nothing really...

I will shake it up (roughly) every day and check on it on Friday(ish).

FUTURE INFUSION IDEAS!
A Vodka Tzatziki cocktail. Basically I want to infuse some vodka with cucumber and garlic. And then some how combine it with Greek yoghurt... Idealy, I would like it to be a clear colourless cocktail with a tzatziki flavour. But that's IN THE FUTURE!!
