How to Make Ginger-Lime-Infused Vodka in 5 Minutes

If you’ve never tried infused vodka, you’re definitely missing out. All it takes is five minutes to fill a couple of jars with ingredients of your choice, then top it up with vodka and leave to infuse until the flavor is to your liking. You might like something elegant like blackberry and vanilla, or even something a bit wacky like Starburst vodka. Our favorite is this ginger and lime vodka, made with crystallized ginger for a Christmassy feel and bursting with lime slices and zest to give it a beautifully vibrant look. Take this to your next holiday party instead of a bottle of wine and surprise your host with a thoughtful and delicious gift.

Ingredients:

Makes two 16-ounce jars

  • — 2 x 16-ounce mason jars
  • — ½ cup crystallized ginger pieces
  • — 5 limes
  • — 750 milliliter bottle good-quality vodka

Instructions:

1. Wash the limes and peel two of them using a vegetable peeler so you have long strips of peel. Cut the remaining three limes into slices.

2. Add the crystallized ginger to the mason jars.

3. Place the sliced limes on top of the crystallized ginger, then arrange the lime peel on top. Pour in the vodka and screw the lid on.

4. Store in the fridge and test the infusion every few days (up to two weeks). Once the flavors taste strong enough, you can strain the vodka into another bottle and store in the fridge.

Note: The limes will start to dull in color after a day or two, so if you’re giving this as a gift and want to leave the lime and ginger in the infusion, it’s best to either refresh the lime and ginger before giving or simply make the infusion and give it straight away.
