You know what they say: varietal vodka is the spice of life. Chile vodka is a versatile ingredient that adds pep to traditional vodka-based recipes, from Bloody Marys to penne a la vodka.
- Chiles de Arbol
- Infusing vessel of choice (make sure it has a tight-fitting lid)
- Fine mesh strainer
Tear chiles into several pieces and drop them into your infusing vessel at a ratio of one chile per two cups vodka. Make sure to catch all of the seeds, too! Pour vodka over top and seal tightly. Let the chiles infuse for 3 days.
Place strainer over a bowl. Pour the chile vodka over the strainer to remove the solid pieces and stop the infusing process. Pour the vodka back into your infusing vessel and seal to store.
