Jalapeño Lime Infused Vodka
Serves: 5 gifts
  1. Remove strings and tags from the tea bags. Insert into vodka bottle. If needed, use a thin knife to push teabags through the neck and into the liquid. Don't worry about puncturing the bags -- you can strain the vodka if necessary.
  2. Trim stems off the peppers. Cut them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Cut each half into strips small enough to fit through the neck of your bottle.
  3. Insert desired amount of peppers into the bottle.
  4. Put the cap back on the bottle, sealing tightly. Shake to make sure the peppers are submerged.
  5. Store in a cool place. After 24 hours, taste-test for the right infusion. Err on the side of stronger, keeping in mind flavor will dilute when mixed with other ingredients.
  6. Portion into 5 pint-sized mason jars, or another container of comparable size.
