The warm, almost minty smell of rosemary brings new life to your boring vodka. You can use it for Bloody Marys, vodka tonics, vodka martinis and more.

Making rosemary-infused vodka couldn't be easier. All you need are the right ingredients and a little time and patience.

Rosemary-infused vodka recipe

Ingredients:

  • Desired amount of quality vodka
  • 2 - 5 sprigs fresh rosemary

Directions:

  1. In a sealable glass jar, insert the rosemary. The more vodka you're making, the more rosemary you should have. Generally, there's no need to use more than 5 sprigs, as you can simply allow it to steep longer to get the desired flavor.
  2. Pour the vodka into the jar and seal.
  3. Place the jar in an out-of the way location out of direct sunlight and allow it to steep for up to 5 days.
  4. Taste the vodka after the first day (and each day thereafter), allowing it to steep until it's reached the desired rosemary flavor.

You can use the rosemary vodka to make a variety of drinks. We recommend this simple rosemary martini.
