Vodka Infusion Recipes from Thrillist

Pick your additive -- be sure it's organic, as pesticides will taint your vodka. Dump everything into an air-tight glass jar and let it sit at room temperature. Most fruits impart their flavors within a couple days, though more fibrous roots (horseradish, ginger, insert hysterical fibrous root joke here) can take a couple weeks.
