  • 1 – ¼” slice ginger optional
  • 1 bottle/750ml vodka
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup granulated sugar

Instructions

  • In a large jar you will add your sliced apples, cinnamon stick, star anise, cardamom pod, cloves, nutmeg and ginger. Pour your vodka over the mixture.
  • Cover and place the vodka mixture in the fridge for 48 hours. Try to shake it a few times in between.
  • Then after the 48 hours you will add your 1/2 cup water and granulated sugar in a saucepan and stir until dissolved on medium heat.
  • Strain your vodka with a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth as your sugar water is cooking. Remove all spices and apples from the vodka.
  • Bring to a simmer and let cook for 30 seconds, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Add the 1/2 cup of the simple syrup you made and pour into the infused vodka, along with vanilla extract.
  • Stir well, and then store in a glass container for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  • Use sweet apples like Fuji, Honeycrisp, Gala, Etc
  • Try to shake the vodka with fruit to help get all the spices and apple flavor released into the vodka.
  • You can skip making your own simple syrup and buy some to use to mix in the vodka after it is infused.
  • Drink plain or use the apple vodka to mix in any vodka drink recipe you would like.
  • Feel free to make as much as you would like at a time, this makes a great holiday gift.
