“This is an infused, sweetened vodka perfect for the fall or winter holidays. If you've never infused vodka, this is a good start because everything starts (and stops) infusing at once: just dump everything in a jar and (with daily stirring) forget about it for 4-7 days until it's magically delicious. Strain and gift in a pretty bottle for a simple, much-appreciated gift. Good for sipping after dinner, but we like a cocktail including this, a splash of real pear juice, club soda, and a squeeze of lime.”

  1. Place the pears, sugar, and spices in a large glass container with a lid such as a quart-sized mason jar.
  2. Add the vodka slowly, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Once it is mostly dissolved, add as much of the vodka as will fit.
  3. Close the lid and place your vodka infusion in a dark, cool place (like a kitchen cabinet away from the stove) for 4-7 days, stirring once a day. Taste test your infusion on day 4--if it tastes good to you, it's done! If you'd like a stronger flavor, keep infusing for several more days. Once infused to your liking, strain out the fruit and spices. It's ready for drinking!
