Ingredients

  • 12 ounces vodka (½ 750 ML bottle)
  • 1 tablespoon green juniper berries
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 slice dehydrated orange (or 4" section of orange/lemon peel)
  • teaspoon lavender (dried)
  • teaspoon anise seeds
  • marigold flower bud (optional)
  • 2 star anise

Instructions

  • Sterilize a 12-ounce or larger mason jar. Pour ½ of a 750 ml bottle of vodka into the jar.
  • Add juniper berries, cardamom pods, coriander seeds, dehydrated orange slice, lemon peel, or both. Stir dried lavender, anise seeds, marigold flower, and star anise into the jar.
  • Seal and shake the bottle, then store it on the counter for 48 hours. When it's time, strain the alcohol through a soup bag into another bottle or jar.

Notes

  • Allspice berries, peppercorns, cloves, bay leaves, and fennel seeds are just some of the ingredients that you can add to a homemade Infused Gin.
  • Infused gin takes on the color of the herbs, spice, and botanicals, which gives it a yellowish tinge, so don't be surprised when your homemade gin is not clear.
  • Before serving infused gin, plop a few juniper berries in your cocktail for a beautiful presentation.
