Here's a easy way to put your own stamp on a drink at your next party compliments of Colin Cowie.
The easiest way to flavor Vodka is to add your desired flavoring directly to the bottle, cap the bottle, and allow it to marinate in the freezer for two or three days. The longer it marinates, the stronger the flavor.
Some of my favorite additions are:
* Lemon grass, 3 or 4 stalks
* Orange rind, 1/2 cup
* Raspberries or blackberries - 1 cup
* Tarragon; 4 or 5 stalks
* Star anise, 6 pods
* Grapefruit rind, 1/2 cup
* Lemon rind, 1/2 cup
* Chili peppers, 1 or 2 peppers (for a milder flavor, remove the seeds)
