A nice glass of Chilli Vodka
For the full recipe, click on Read More below
* 1 750ml bottle of the finest quality Sainsburys budget label Vodka that money can buy
* Half a dozen good size red chillies. (long skinny ones are easier than short fat ones)
Dispose of approx 100ml of vodka. If you sip it slowly, this should last until you finish making your Chilli vodka
Using a sharp knife, cut the the tops off of the chillies, and then slice them lengthwise.
One by one, poke the chilli halves down the neck of the vodka bottle. If you bought very fat chillies, then you may have to disect further for them to fit easilly.
Now the tricky bit. Wait. Wait for at least 4 weeks before drinking, shaking from time to time while you wait. The waiting is the hard part, and seems to take forever. But wait. If you don't wait, then you'll end up with hot vodka with no taste. So wait. If you're good enough at waiting, and have gone over 4 weeks, then you should end up with a very very nice spicey vodka with a decent kick to it. Waiting is good.
For full appreciation, you probably want to dilute with coke, orange juice, or your favorite mixer. Pour carefully so as to avoid seeds, and don't bother with the last 1/2 inch of vodka, as things can get a bit hot the nearer to the end you got! Enjoy.
