Finely mince some garlic and let it soak in olive oil for an hour or so, it's amazingly good stuff. ;) I just make sure there's enough oil to cover the garlic so it's pretty potent but adding more oil obviously mellows the flavor.
Can easily make lemon infused olive oil too. I never make much, but generally use about a scant cup of olive oil and the zest of one lemon. Orange works just as well if you're feeling froggy. I use a micro-plane zester so I don't get any of the pith but can just peel the yellow part off with a sharp knife if you don't have one. Put it in a pan over medium-low heat until it gets thoroughly warmed through. Don't let it bubble, keep the heat lower than a simmer. It takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. Let it cool. It's good in just about everything. ;)
