When you give a bottle of this juice-infused vodka, you'll want to stick around for the toast. It's not only sophisticated but also incredibly simple to make—one of 13 easy-to-make treats from Stir! Mix! Bake! Give!
Servings: Makes 1 (750 ml) bottle
- 2 blood oranges
- 1 (750-ml) bottle premium vodka
Wash and dry oranges. Cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds and layer in a tall, wide-mouth jar.
Pour vodka over top (reserve bottle); seal lid. Allow to infuse in a cool, dark place for 3 to 4 days.
Meanwhile, soak bottle to remove labels; clean bottle and have it ready to fill. Strain infused vodka through a cheesecloth-lined sieve; discard solids. Use a funnel to pour liquid back into bottle. Store in refrigerator or freezer until ready to give. Tie a bow and attach a gift card, or create your own label.
