Drink: Pomegranate-Lime Infused Vodka

09Dec09


Ingredients:

1 medium-size pomegranate

1 medium-size lime

1 1/2 cups good-quality vodka

Instructions: Cut pomegranate into quarters. Fill a medium-size bowl two-thirds full with water and with hands submerged separate seeds from peel and membrane (in water the seeds will sink and membrane will float making them easier to separate). Discard peel and pith. Spread seeds on a cutting board and gently crush with a rolling pin to release some of the juices. Set aside.

Using a sharp paring knife or vegetable peeler cut zest from lime in thin strips. Avoid cutting into the white pith which is bitter.

Pour vodka into a 1 1/2-quart jar and then add pomegranate seeds and their juice as well as the lime zest. Cover tightly with lid and shake gently. Place in a dark cool area and shake gently every few days. After two weeks strain infused vodka into a clean bottle. Use immediately or allow to age further if desired.
