Vodka Infusions: Ginger

Ok, folks. Last night I was making Thai food and had a little leftover raw ginger to work with. I also had a lot of 100-proof vodka. It dawned on me that if I had a ginger flavored liquor, I could make a number of spicy drinks without having to water down a cocktail with ginger beer. Here’s how to do it at home.

1. Grate a peeled piece of raw ginger (about 2 inches long).
2. Heat ginger and 2-4 cups of vodka in covered saucepan to 160 degrees.
3. Let stand to cool. Filter vodka through a fine screen to remove ginger bits.
4. Store in a clean, airtight bottle.

It’s an easy way to make a great tasting liquor that costs less than specialty liqueurs. Soon I will be posting new recipes that use ginger vodka.
