I made you some infused vodka on a Monday.
Because my girl Megan knows what’s up.
Because TGIF comes every week.
Because this stuff takes a few days to happen, so you have to make it like, now, if you want TGIF to happen.
Sometimes you get confused though and TGIF comes twice a week. You can either cry in your cornflakes or embrace drinking on a Thursday with this vodka. Choose the embrace.
Infused vodka couldn’t be easier. Seriously, just some fruit and vodka, sitting together for a few days in a dark place like a cabinet, or the soul of a mob wife.
Not only am I giving you the vodka, but I’m giving you my new favorite drink of the summer:
The classic greyhound is just grapefruit and vodka, with a squeeze of lime or lemon. This sunburnt version gets a nice red hue (and amazing flavor) from the strawberry rhubarb vodka and some nice cooling business from the mint leaves. Total cheers to Summer drink.
Now let’s hurry up and get that vodka infused so it’s ready for the weekend, or the double TGIF.
Strawberry Rhubarb Infused Vodka
From Megan, of Take a Megabite
1 1/2 c quartered strawberries
1 1/2 c thick sliced rhubarb
375 ml vodka, about 1 2/3 c
Place everything in a quart size mason jar and place in a cabinet. Agitate jar a couple times a day for 3-5 days. The vodka will have sucked all the life out of the strawberries and rhubarb and leave you with a sweet and sexy strawberry vodka. Strain out the strawberries and serve in everything.
If you were to, say, put this in a glass of lemonade someone would maybe try and make out with you.
A couple of notes: It’s insane how well the strawberry rhubarb flavor comes through. You also don’t need to go out and buy the most expensive bottle of vodka. I really like Svedka for it’s price point and quality. I’m not getting payed to say this, I just know when it comes to the less expensive vodkas a lot of them can taste like gasoline.
