Description

Create your own tasty alcohol infusion! This was taught in our recent Infuse Your Booze class, taught by Jessica LaBrie of Blackbird’s Botanicals.

Ingredients

2  
apple (tart, large)
3/4 liter
bourbon (does not have to be top quality)
1 cup
sugar
1 cup
water
2  
cinnamon stick (or 2 Tbsp cinnamon chips)
1  
orange (zest of)
2  
cloves

Instructions

Peel and grate apples.  Place all ingredients except for bourbon into a 1 quart pot. Cook on low heat stirring constantly until all sugar crystals have dissolved. Let cool and strain through cheesecloth or mesh strainer, pressing out all liquids from leftover contents. Pour infused syrup into a 1 quart glass jar, or divide equally amongst smaller jars, and top with bourbon. Shake. Let infuse for 1 week to two months in a cool dark place, making sure to shake daily. Taste will improve the longer it sits.
