Infused Vodkas

For the Gastronati's former USSR night, vodka was the drink of choice, naturally. Calimocho brought over a homemade pepper infusion, and PB and J made these delicious blackberry and peach vodkas and served them in glass pitchers. Their recipe also works with other kinds of fruit, so you can try it with strawberries, raspberries, passion fruit, pears or watermelon, too.

Fruit-Infused Vodkas

one 750 mL bottle of good vodka (PB used Stoli)
4 cups of cut fruit
1/2 cup sugar or honey
handful of fresh mint leaves (optional)

Combine all ingredients into a large bowl or jar and seal tightly. Refrigerate for at least five days. Taste periodically to enjoy and see if it's ready! Strain the mixture and discard the solids. Keep the vodka infusion in the fridge or freezer.
