Pepper Vodka?

Anyone hear of this? I haven't seen it. On Food Network Simple to Make program before 30 Minute Meals, she was fixing all kinds of cocktails. I heard her mention Pepper Vodka, Regular Vodka, Tomato Juice, taste of liquid from olives. Referred to it as Dirty Mary. Also put Celery Salt on plate to line glass with. I saw this before 9 this morning and made me thirsty???? Am I becoming alcoholic?

Have researched and do not find Pepper vodka.

You know, I need to find the exact episode but Alton makes a peppered vodka in one of his shows. It takes somewhere around 6 months to complete.

I'll try to remember the episode.

Oh yes, it was on his peppercorn show :) Let me give you the exact details !

Here they are:

2 tablespoons peppercorns, slightly cracked
1 (750-ml) bottle of vodka
Add the peppercorns to the vodka and allow to sit in a cool dark place for 7 days. Stir or gently shake to combine every few days. After 7 days, strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove the peppercorns.

Place in a sterilized* glass container with a lid and store in a cool dark place.

Tips on Sterilizing Jars Properly-handled sterilized equipment will keep canned foods in good condition for years. Sterilizing jars is the first step of preserving foods.

Absolut makes a pepper infused vodka called Absolut Peppar. You can also infuse it yourself.

Got It Right

I did get the name right. I couldn't believe it was pepper vodka. Thanks for help. Have you ever tried it?

ITK I have had the Absolut Peppar. It has quite a kick. Perfect for bloody marys.

Kick

GB, you sure know the vodkas. I always think of you w/Grey Goose. It is so mild. Do they make a pepper one too? What made you try it? Just for Bloody Marys? They must be healthy if they have tomato juice w/it? At least I like to think that way. Happy New Year to you.

What else do you like w/vodka? I mean Grey Goose Vodka?

Yes I only use the pepper vodka for bloody marys.

For Grey Goose, I just drink that straight. It is too good to mix with anything else IMO.

GB, Katie gave me some Grey Goose for Christmas. Do you recommend it for a martini? How do you prefer it? Chilled? On the rocks? Help me here. I've had plenty of rotgut in my time. I need help handling the good stuff.

Thanks,
Buck

Yes it is great in a martini. I do not chill the vodka itself though. I was taught that part of certain drinks (a martini being one of them) is a certain amount of melted ice mixing with the alcohol when you put it all in the shaker and mix it up. If the vodka is chilled then the ice does not melt into the drink.

I also like Grey Goose on the rocks. I fill a glass quite full with rocks and then pour the room temp vodka over top.

Be careful though cause it goes down VERY easily. Enjoy it Buck!
