vanilla chai vodka

June 5, 2011

modified from this

a capful (half-teaspoon?) vanilla extract (not artificially flavored)
1 part cinnamon
1.5 part star anise
1.5 part allspice
1 part black peppercorns
giant chunks of ginger
a large mason jar 3/4 full of vodka

shake twice a day.

EDIT 6/13: do NOT leave the spices in longer than a few days. it’s so spicy that it’s barely drinkable on its own. you may want to check this one twice a day to make sure it isn’t getting too strong. now to figure out a way to use the spices afterwards; anyone ever had luck with re-using them in anything, or does the vodka taste permeate everything?
