Homemade Ginger Infused Vodka:First, I cut a 4-inch knob of ginger into thin strips. Then, with the blunt end of the knife I pounded on each strip of ginger a little bit, just to make sure it would release lots of ginger flavor. I poured a little vodka out of the 750 ml bottle of Tito's I was using to make room for the ginger. I pushed the ginger into the bottle and poured back in as much vodka as I could and placed it on the counter. I wasn't sure how long it was going to take to really infuse some great ginger flavor. Greg told me that sometimes he lets it sit a few hours, sometimes a week. I observed and sniffed it everyday. For the first four days, the vodka was somewhat cloudy. After day four, it had become clear and smelled pretty fragrant. I think it would have been good to go at this point, but I mustered all my will power and decided to wait a whole week, until the July 4th weekend we were spending at the beach!
