Recipe Notes

Even though the recipe states that it takes 3-5 days to make this cocktail, that is only to allow time for the flavors to infuse the vodka so don't let that scare you. To make the actual cocktail itself only takes minutes. Since this recipe makes about 3 cups of the infused vodka, making the cocktail in the future will take only minutes because you have already knocked out the first step!
