Infused vodka

Playing with infusing vodka. Ginger on the left, ginger with lemon on the right. They've been steeping for 10 days.

We cracked them open and made a couple of cocktails tonight (just vodka, simple syrup and sparkling water). The drinks were too subtle, so we put the jars back in the pantry for a bit longer.

Might just need to use more ginger and lemon peel (here, a quarter cup of ginger per pint, plus the peel from half a lemon), or maybe chop the ginger finer.

Responding to the good long rain we got last weekend.
