How To: Make a raspberry-flavored vodka infusion

Make a raspberry-flavored vodka infusion

Not many people can drink vodka straight, and that's were fruit infusions come in, and one of the best infusions for vodka is the raspberry. Raspberries create a great-flavored vodka, which can be used for a variety of mixed drinks.

This vodka infusion has the fresh juiciness of raspberries without the artificial, chemical-like taste of flavored vodkas. Kevin Martin of Eastern Standard shows how simple liquor infusions can be. How does this infusion yield such a vibrant raspberry-red hue? Freeze the berries for a few hours. The ice crystals that form will cause the cell walls to burst and yield a bold color. Cover and leave the mixture and room temperature for 3 weeks. Then strain and use in your favorite vodka-based cocktails.
