Vivid Karet Vodka Series: Strawberry

strawberry vodka

We go through a lot of vodka, so it was time to make another one.  This time, we infused our vodka with organic frozen strawberries from Whole Foods.  If you are using a wide mouth container, be sure to cover it so it doesn’t evaporate.  We plan to mix it with ginger ale, sprite, or seltzer.  We’ll to add a splash of lime. 

Happy snow day!

Vivid Karet Vodka Series: Grapefruit and Raspberry

Grapefruit and raspberries

This week, we made vodka infused with grapefruit and raspberries.  We used a cup of frozen raspberries, because it’s what we had on hand, and we peeled one grapefruit before we put it in our handle of vodka.

We recommend using Skyy vodka, because it comes in a blue bottle.  The raspberries will turn white and look gross, and the blue bottle will hide them.  After you put in the fruit, we put the little plastic piece at the top of the bottle back in.  This kept stray raspberries from coming out when we poured it.

We mixed with one-part vodka, one-part ginger ale, and added some more frozen raspberries. Enjoy!

Vivid Karet Vodka Series – Cucumber

Tonight we bring you the epic adventures of Vivid Karet.

We will bring you knives.
We will bring you wood.
We will bring you carbonated beverages.

Let us be clear.  The knives are for cutting vegetables.  The wood is the medium upon which we cut the vegetables.  The carbonated beverages… well just wait and see.

How to make cucumber vodka – a refreshing summer drink.

3. Pick a fun water bottle to use as a container.
4. Add the cucumber to the vodka.

5. …Let sit for at least seven hours.

Cucumber Vodka 4

Voilà!

7. Mix:
Two shots ginger ale or sprite
One shot cucumber vodka

There was major disagreement about which we liked better.
Marchewka and Choiloi liked the ginger ale, and Zanahoria and Klar liked the sprite best.

A special shout out must go to our friend Michael D. who originally inspired our infusion series.
