Place the chiles in a large glass container, add the vodka/neutral, and cap tightly. Let stand at room temperature for 48 hours, shaking gently once or twice a day. Taste for the preferred flavor and heat intensity, allowing it to infuse for up to 2 more days if needed.
(Do not allow it to infuse any longer than 2 weeks, or a bitter flavor can develop)
Strain the infusion, cap tightly, label, and refrigerate (optional) until ready for use or to serve.
Makes a damn good Bloody Marys.
Add the peppercorns to the vodka/neutral and allow to sit in a cool dark place for 7 days. Stir or gently shake to combine every few days. After 7 days, strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove the peppercorns. Bottle in glass with a lid and store in a cool dark place.
Depending on the peppercorns used the flavor varies but still can be used in a Bloody Mary recipe with good results... a different sipping flavor for vodka
