#HappyHourClub Cocktail: Peep Infused Vodka

 

First off, this vodka infusion was extremely fun to make and quite simple. As time passed, I was entertained by watching the peeps slowly dissipate into my Tito’s Vodka. About 1 week later, I was left with an odd space floating foam at the top that was once a Peep. Thankfully my anticipation to try this Easter themed infusion was worth it, the vodka had a slight peep flavor which got me thinking (and wishing) I had added more. Well, based on my process I would recommended if you were to test this infusion out you should start by adding at least 5 peeps to your mixture so make sure that your mason jar is the grand daddy size. Also, for kicks, add a teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract. It compliments the sugary infusion nicely. Below I’ve supplied the cocktail recipe featured for this #happyhourclub infusion, dubbed the Peeptastic.
