Alconomics? Are Arabic/Greek compound words common?

And in case you missed it before, Bacon Vodka.

The best flavor I ever had was cucumber vodka with a splash of tonic. Very refreshing.

I see your bacon vodka and raise you bacon-maple bourbon.

Ginseng infused soju is delicious. I should make some ginseng-infused vodka.

That's the next step right there: crack-infused vodka. or vodka soaked crack. whatever.

I have heard of such a thing as whiskey-flavored cocaine.

Amongst other flavors. It is evidently a Tiajuana thing.

The reason for all these flavors and stuff (as fun as they are) is that vodka has no real flavor of it's own. This is why I'm a brown liquor (scotch, bourbon, Irish whiskey) guy. Thos boozes don't need no stinkin' infusions.

Oh these do not sound tasty to me. However, the title of this post was most delicious and creative.

They should have done the garlic vodka in the Caesar. Mmm... caesars.

I'm drunk on 9 year-old whiskey and 5-minute eggs.
Great post!

My favorite cocktail any bar has made for me is bergamot infused vodka and lemon simple syrup. They call it the Jean Grey, but it's obviously the Jane Grey.

Oh, and don't forget to infuse Rumpleminze with shake and mix it into cocoa.

Ambrosia: good call, my friend. I've warmed many a cold evening with that concoction. You may also want to try mixing creme de menthe into eggnog. It's like an alchololic shamrock shake.

I once attempted to make Crunchberry-infused vodka.

Did it work? Well, if it had I'd probably never shut up about it.

As it turns out, the crunchberry flavor wasn't really absorbed by the vodka. The preservative flavor, however, was.

If I'm ever worried that I'm drinking too much, I'll make another batch. If I drink it, I'm an alcoholic.

When I was at the Japanese market the other day, I decided that I wanted to try yuzu flavored vodka. The liquor section did not stock such a delicacy.

@kuujjuarapik

Too bad they don't ship that stuff -- I'd love to try it, but not worth the drive to Boston. I'm tempted to try homebrew, but I imagine they have the proportions down a little better.

Anyone have a good recipe for infused whiskey?

My friends will never let me forget the time that I was so pissed that I couldn't recall the word 'whisky', and politely asked a barman for his finest 'brown Scottish vodka'.

I made an infusion of vodka with some Scandinavian hard pepper licorice.

It was absolutely horrible. I felt like someone Rick Roll'd me into making it and the punchline was that I wanted to sneeze after taking a shot of that.

Only one of my friends would take a shot, and he was gasping for water since it was so salty. No one else would even touch it after that.

wow. they did a peep infusion.

that's some serious sciencing there. duly impressed.

I've soaked marijuana in everclear, then diluted it down to 40%.

It tastes like pot, gave one a little body high, but I should have put it through a brita filter.
