Handmade Holidays: Infused Liquor

Handmade Holidays: Infused Liquor

As we saw with some of the tragic injuries during Black Friday, holiday shopping can get out of control. Not only is it bad for us socially, but hitting the big box store is not so hot for the planet, either. Those great holiday deals are often produced in far off places using materials that are bad for workers and for the environment. This year, you can pledge to have a handmade holiday, where you promise to either buy your gifts from handmade artisans or make them yourself.

I always have the toughest time thinking up handmade gifts for the men on my holiday list. That was, until I discovered the joys of infusing. If the fellas on your list appreciate a good cocktail, an interesting infused liquor is sure to please! We’ll cover liquor infusing basics, a few recipes, and ideas for packaging your infusions!

I am blessed to have a neighbor with a huge paddle cactus. These are the ones with the beautiful magenta prickly pear fruits. I like to add the chopped fruit to vodka to make an infusion. The flavor and aroma are out of this world. And the color is the most beautiful magenta. It makes for an over the top drink presentation.
