Ingredients

  • 250ml (1 cup) Quality vodka
  • 1 Red Birds Eye chilli

Instructions

  • Put the vodka into a wide-necked screwtop jar
  • Slit the chilli lengthways and add to the vodka
  • Seal, shake gently and leave to infuse for 1 hour
  • Dip a teaspoon into the vodka, remove and taste
  • IF IT IS AT A HEAT LEVEL YOU ARE HAPPY WITH STOP HERE - STRAIN THROUGH A SIEVE TO REMOVE THE CHILLI AND SEEDS AND POUR INTO A BOTTLE
  • Otherwise infuse for a further hour, test again, and continue in this way until the desired heat level is achieved (I like a 3 hour infusion, but tastes vary - please read my guidance notes in my blog post to achieve your perfect blend)
  • Once the desired spice level is achieved, remove all of the chilli and it's seeds and decant into a bottle
  • CLEARY label the bottle - helps avoid accidental use
