“The end of summer is fast approaching and we’ve been trying to soak up every last minute of it! Our favorite way to slow down and enjoy these long sunny days is getting  together with a great group of friends to sip on a refreshing cocktail to beat the heat.

Playing around with different cocktail recipes and ingredients is always fun, but I thought I would kick it up a notch this summer with a DIY vodka infusion! It’s a playful and easy way to personalize your drinks and give them a unique twist. You can tailor the infusion to your specific taste and preference since you can infuse vodka with almost anything! Some great flavors to try are lemon, watermelon, blueberry, basil, mint, lavender, jalapeños, or even vanilla. Since I’m a sucker for all things floral I thought I’d give a rose infusion a try. It was such an easy process and turned our vodka the prettiest shade of peachy pink with delicate floral notes.”

• To create your rose infused vodka simply combine dried rose petals and vodka in a clean airtight container and let sit for at least 24hrs or up to a week depending on how strong you prefer. I chose a ratio of about 1 tablespoon rose petals to 1 cup vodka. To note- choose a high quality vodka that you enjoy drinking but keep in mind that the higher the alcohol content the stronger the infusion will be. I sourced the organic dried rose buds and petals from my local grocery stores bulk tea section.

• Once I was satisfied with the strength of the infusion I strained out the rose petals and transferred my vodka to a nice bottle. I decided to go one step further and create a sticker label for a personalized touch. I simply used a floral stamp I had on hand and wrote the name of the infusion and date on the label. I really loved this little handmade element! And it would make the infusion such a nice gift!

• Now, for the cocktail combine the vodka, simple syrup, grapefruit juice, tonic water, and rose water in a chilled glass filled with ice. Add some rose petals for garnish, stir, and enjoy!”
