I found this idea while writing my blog for 10 Inexpensive and Easy Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas. These are the perfect little gifts for those who are of drinking age (21 and over) on your list 🙂 They are great to mix into mixed drinks or sip on sparingly on their own, a little goes a long way!! One great thing about these there is no exact science…. it’s all about your preference of how much flavor you want infused!
I chose peppermint (candy canes) because I thought peppermint vodka would be great to have during the Christmas season and rosemary because I have a ton of it and it looks like a mini Christmas tree sprig once in the jar. If none of these float your boat there are so many infusion options!
Here are just some ideas of alcohols and items you can infuse them with:
Gin– apples, pear, cucumber, basil
Whiskey– fruit, coffee
Brandy– plum, cinnamon, vanilla
Rum– Spices, an array of spices and fruits
Tequila- citrus fruits jalapeno

The options really are endless and are all up to you or your recipient’s preference 🙂
***One thing I forgot to mention in the video is once the alcohol is done infusing and you’re not giving it as a gift be sure to filter the alcohol if using larger chunks of ingredients (ingredients such as candy canes will denigrate completely so straining isn’t necessary).
