Pumpkin Spice-infused Vodka…
Pumpkin Spice-infused Vodka
- 1 vanilla bean (6 in.)
- piece of pumpkin or banana squash
- ½ of a whole nutmeg
- 1 bottle (750 ml. or 1 qt.) vodka
- Cut 1 vanilla bean (6 in.) in half lengthwise. With a vegetable peeler, shave 12 thin ribbons (4 to 6 in. long and about 1 in. wide) off a rinsed piece of pumpkin or banana squash. In a 1- to 1½-quart jar, combine vanilla, pumpkin, ½ of a whole nutmeg, and 1 bottle (750 ml. or 1 qt.) vodka. Seal jar and let stand at least 4 days or up to 3 months. The flavor intensifies the longer it stands; remove flavorings once vodka tastes as strong as you like.
