Infused Vodka for Pops

Every year around this time, my brother and I get hit with a double whammy- our dad’s birthday and Father’s Day in the same week!  We wanted to make something different for him this year, so Brad and I decided to make 3 different kinds of infused vodkas.  We had extra ingredients, so we ended up making a batch for our friends too!  Hope you enjoy!

  1. This is so great! My sister did this for Christmas this year with gin and vodka. There’s also a restaurant in Frederick called Cafe Nola that has a whole shelf of infused liquors- and my favorite drink is a Peach Palmer. It’s black tea with Peach infused vodka. Mmmmmm 🙂 You guys should try that next!!
