Phew! I overdid it on the Chilli. I read to make Chilli vodka you need to keep them in the bottle for two weeks if you're hardcore and a a few days if you're not. It didnt say anything about using haberneros. I should have known. The stuff is lethal. I diluted a third of the bottle with a litre of vodka. Still too hot. It almost made me vomit. I then diluted it again with another full bottle of Vodka. The 3rd generation is still Mindbendingly hot but is drinkable. Now I seem to have a lifetime supply of Chilli Vodka! I bought a bottle of Sailor Jerry for a mate's Birthday. I poured 1 Shot of the 1st generation in and Shazam!!! Hot spicy rum!!!! He loved it.
Jeez, you did this just for science?! Brave man!
I hear you brother! I was working behind a bar one afternoon, cleaning and I wondered how the Jalapeno Vodka infusion thing was working out (ok, I wuz bored & wanted a drink). We were using it for Bloody Caesars, but the fad had worn off, 4 weeks old (refrigerated) I guess.
I knocked back a shot.....You have never seen a person pour a glass of milk THIS FAST! A couple of peppers and overnight works fine...beyond that...it can get VERY ugly. Rum works in place of Vodka for virtually anything. Great Post, THANKS!
