That’s right! We’re making dill pickle vodka today! I’m transporting us back 5 years ago when infusing alcohol was SO IN! Not sure when this awesome trend faded away, but I still luuuuuuv me some booze infusions. #CAN’TSTOPWON’TSTOP! Let’s just pretend it’s still cool, and infuse some vodka perfect for bloody mary’s mmmmmmkay – Dill pickle vodka.
You know, I’m not much of a vodka lover. I’m more of a whiskey lady myself, but every so often I like to create seasonal concoctions with fresh produce and booze. You know what works the best? Vodka. If you are looking for a way to feel like a culinary genius, without actually putting in much effort, this is it guys. Couldn’t be easier. You just add ingredients that sound tasty together in a jar, cover with vodka, and let sit. That’s it. PICKLE flavored vodka is truly unique. It packs a serious punch!
But, of course you all learned this 5 years ago, when everyone and their mother’s made jolly rancher vodka. Right?
THIS pickle infused vodka though. This ain’t no candy flavored wussy vodka. THIS vodka – this is PICKLE vodka. Dilly, peppery, garlicky, tangy, a savory booze for a unique cocktail. I am totes gonna put it in a bloody mary. With tons of tobasco and spicy peppers for garnish. Also thinking a pickle martini. I had one at Bastille once and it was freakin killer. Like pickle juice that gets you drunk!
