5 Summer Booze Infusions

Dreaming of sipping a refreshing cocktail on the beach while you ignore phone calls from your boss? We're waaaay ahead of you! 

Sometimes you need to deviate from the alcohol purist in you and switch up your booze-game with these fun infusions! Never infused alcohol before? Don’t worry it’s easy to do!


What you will need to infuse:


  • Spirit of your choice: Make sure it has a  high proof, 90-100 proof is best!
  • Glass or metal container: These containers won’t affect the flavors of your spirit. Also, make sure the container can be sealed very tight.
  • Coffee filters or a fine cloth: You will need something thin and fine to strain your spirit through and remove anything other than the liquid.

Top Tip:


  • Taste as you go:  It is important to taste your infusion as you are creating it. Everyday it is infusing, the flavors will become more potent. You may not want the flavor to be so strong. Also, the longer it is infusing, it may draw out bitter flavors from fruits or herbs, so be sure to not over-infuse!
