Wow, I checked on the Pepper Vodka, and after just 3 days its the color of Iced tea and smells VERY strong. So I decanted and bottled it. Wow its a bit strong, but VERY refreshing and STRONG. I may dial back the peppercorns just a bit to mellow it out a bit. Still this stuff is darker than the scotch that previously occupied the bottle its residing in.
Should make a killer martini!
So it’s strong? 🙂
You should put it in a spray bottle and keep it in case of bear attacks.
Heh, not that kind of pepper!
But if it doesn’t knock them out it will make them loopy
Might make them fall in love with me and do my bidding so they can get more sweet-sweet infused vodka!
I would be like a GOD!
Yeah, but is it strong enough?
That I’m going to have to judge. I dipped a tablespoon into the unfiltered jar and it seemed a bit rugged. But then I poured a glass over ice and I found it really pleasant.
Of course I also have the tail-end of a head-cold, and I had a chipoltle chicken salad for my dinner so my pallet was hardly clean, so this needs further investigation.
I will say this batch was NOT a failure!
I use pepper vodka to make Bloody Marys. Absolutely fantastic.
