Pear Infused Vodka Recipe

I had a really great tasting pear infused vodka over the weekend. It was full of flavor and very sippable. I got the recipe of how it was made from the dude who made it:

- 2 pears
- 1 liter vodka
- 4 whole pods of cardamom
- 2 whole cloves
- 1 cinamon stick


Take 2 pears, chop them up into chunks (discard the core/stem, but leave the skin on). Put them in a bowl or other infusing vessel. Pour about 800-850 ml vodka over the top (I add extra because some of the vodka inevitably disappears. I guess the pears drink some and some of it evaporates. Annoying.) Cover the vessel and let it sit for a week at room temp. After a week, add 4 whole pods of cardamom, 2 whole cloves, and a cinnamon stick. Then, let it sit for another week. Strain, pour in bottle, chill, enjoy.

Avocado Infused Vodka

I made some avocado infused vodka last week. It is good if you really like avocados. Like any infused vodka the taste is less vodka-y. Sipping a shot is now doable with a lesser quality vodka. I made the infusion by using 2 ripe avocado fruit over 4 days of infusion. 1 fruit was added and removed every 2 days.

The avocado taste is not very strong, neither is the smell. There is a slight creamy avocado taste to this infusion which is nice.
