RC's Garlic Vodka
« on: March 15, 2011, 03:55:49 PM »
Not to totally derail the thread, but the garlic vodka was simply too much garlic for two cups of vodka. It seems to me that the right way to infuse is the way you see it in bars; a big three or four galleon glass container filled with layers of vegetables where you pour the vodka in through the top and let it seep through all the veggies. Then you have a spout at the bottom that you serve the vodka with.

But I'm going to go buy some Mason jars and start experimenting!

And here's the mason jar method:

And don't reply for a few minutes because I'll split these off and put them in the Lush forum.

Those 204 oz babies with the spout are pretty cheap.

Hmmmmm . . . a plan is forming.

I guess I'd want to do small amounts first to test out what I like. I'd get pretty sick of bloody marys before long. I want to do fruity stuff too.

Homemade grape bombs!!

The grapefruit lemongrass vodka sounds nice:

Watching an episode of Drinking Made Easy now where Zane is going nuts about bacon vodka. The "breakfast in a glass" bloody mary sounds awesome...

So house made bacon vodka -- fry three strips of hickory-smoked bacon, put them in a bottle of vodka, wait until the vodka turns smoky and the bacon looks like it's raw (it'll lose its color and sink down into the bottom of the bottle).

Here's the recipe for the bloody mary (and I'll drink this with you!):

Breakfast in a Glass

Bacon Infused vodka
Tomato Juice
Worcestershire Sauce
Hot Sauce
Bitters
Celery Salt
Garlic Salt
Pepper
Lemon

That sounds awesome.

The best Bloody Mary I've ever had is served at a bar just north of Haight St. in San Francisco. I don't know what they put in it, but it was exquisitely good. I'll have to get the name of the place so Tyson can tell me if I was simply dreaming, hungover, or both.

I'm dumping the last of it because the garlic is really overwhelming at this point. I powered a bloody mary down last night, but it was tough.

I think next time I'll do the cloves whole instead of slicing them.

Just do more vodka. And don't dump that, pour it into the last of the Smirnoff and let it sit.

It's strong because it's, what, two bulbs of Garlic in two cups of vodka, right?

Maybe if I add a grape bomb, it'll get better?

No. Don't do that. Throw that grape bomb away.

I should make it into a mini molotov cocktail.

It was only 2 cups of vodka with a ridiculous amount of garlic. (And onions. And green beans.) I need bigger container which I don't have at this point.

All right, I found a mason jar that was about 2 cups. I transferred the "Vampire Killer" mix over taking out about half the vegetables. Then I filled it back up with that shitty Smirnoff.

I'll mix up a bloody tonight and see how it goes.

Just mixed up a bloody mary using the infused vodka that's been sitting on the fridge for a month. Amazing.
