So this is a easy recipe to make a vodka to whatever your heat preference may be. Once you have it made, the Vodka goes great with Bloody Mary’s and the Tequila can be shot straight with a cold beer and some homemade Taco Cheesecake Dip. I’m a fan of The Hotter The Better so I like to use Habanero but you can use whatever pepper may be in season or suit your fancy.
1 Bottle of Quality Vodka or Tequila
4-6 oz of Hot Peppers (Cheyenne, Jalapeno, Habanero or if your really up for heat use Ghost Peppers).
Coffee Filter and Funnel
- Take the peppers and de-stem then roughly chop, seeds included.
- Pour Vodka/Tequila into Mason Jar and throw in the peppers.
- Let sit for 4-7 days. Keep out of direct sunlight and don’t let sit for more then 10-14 days as you’ll get a bitter taste.
- Line funnel with Coffee Filter and filter Vodka/Tequila back into the original jar.
- Enjoy your “FireWater”.
