Infused Alcohol

Last summer a friend of mine gave me a drink of Cinnamon infused Spiced Rum .. and MAN WAS IT DELISH!

I don't know what brand of spiced rum it was, but I decided to make some myself. I got some cheep rum, some Virgin Island Rum was like $11 USD for a 750ml, some Old Crow Bourbon, and a 5 stick package of Cinnamon sticks. I put 2 1/2 sticks in each.

It's been almost 3 weeks, and I figure I'd try alil bit every month to see how they turn out. I didn't take any before pics, but I swear the rum & bourbon has darkened some.

Let us know how it turns out.
I'd like to try it but the cheapest rum you can buy here - and the sneaky beggars have reduced the size to 700ml - is around $30 a bottle.

Had some of the Rum, not quite as infused as my friends, but it tasted darn good.

Dang $30 a bottle of the cheepest Rum?

I do this with vodka. Peppercorns(pink), orange zest, and some rosemary. Sit it in a closet for a couple of months, makes for some great fun martinis in the cooler months.

tequila + cinnamon + raisins???

I know you can buy flavored stuffs, but it's more fun to make your own. Sure you can go buy a Ribeye Steak at Chris-Ruths...but you can grill your own at home!

I don't know what brand of spiced rum it was, .
It was probably Captain Morgan.

I make cucumber-infused gin.

Last weekend, there was a HUGE turnout at my friends River Tubing Adventure. I figure this would be a good place to share my infused concoction. The Old Crow was pretty good, everyone liked it .. but unfortunately the Rum bottle broke in the Cooler, and no one got to try it (including me)

Next time I am going to buy Plastic bottled alcohol!

We make our own alcoholic infusions, but patience is needed because herbs, spices and certain fruits macerating in alcohol need time to mature. But be warned, some of these homemade liquours can be lethal, unless sipped only in small glasses.

Port Royal or Silver Seal 15 year old demerara rums are great for infusing with spices. But it’s when Uitvlugt is used that life takes on a haze of its own.
