Chilli Vodka is a very simple thing to make, it seems to have gone out of fashion at the moment. You can us any chillies you fancy, deep red chillies with give the Vodka a nice colour if left long enough.

I was given a couple of bottles of Inferno Vodka 5 years ago, we drank one and save the other, as you can see the colour from the  hydroponically grown 911 chilles has tinted the Vodka.

Let six Jalapeno’s ripen to red, then harvest. Cut off the Peduncle (the stem) and Calyx (the green bit that holds the stem to the flesh), then cut in half length-ways and remove the seeds and Placenta (The white bit between the seeds and the flesh). If they were large peppers cut again into quarters, they need to fit into the bottle.

Now comes the hard part, open a bottle of good quality Vodka and remove a glass full (don’t drink it yet), push the slices of jalapeno into the bottle and then top the bottle backup from the vodka you did not drink earlier, seal up the bottle. Now if there is any leftover you can now drink this.

You will need to keep this for at least 8 weeks for the vodka to take the flavour from the chillies, it is a great drink to make at the end of the chilli season ready for a winter warming.

This also can be used to make a fab drink

Chilli Bloody Mary

4 -6 cubes (cracked) Ice
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1 measure Chilli vodka
6 measures tomato juice
the juice of 1/2 a lemon

a pinch celery salt
a pinch of cayenne pepper

Crack the ice and put into a shaker. Dash the Worcestershire over the ice and pour in the vodka, tomato juice and lemon juice. Shake vigorously and then strain into a tall glass, optionally you can add a pinch of celery salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Hi… I received some of this some years ago as a gift, completely forgot about it and found it in back of cupboard. It’s now an orangey colour but still clear. Will it still be safe ?

I would think so, if it is fizzy then bin it, I have bottles that are over 10 years old..
