This space/blog’s purpose will be to share my experiments with infusion liquors, as well as some of the mixes my evil henchmen and I have created. We’ll cover ingredient selection, formulas and techniques, supplies, and fun uses. I also hate wasting anything so if ever there is a purpose for leftover/used ingredients, we’ll tackle those as well.
Infusing is not entirely unlike science–you often end up a little drunk when done with your experiments. On the one hand, it’s really not so hard: take a jar, add booze, add something you found lying around the house, seal and give it time. Many infusions are actually quite forgiving. On the other hand, there really is a sweet spot to a lot of these, and what you do with your infusion later is often the tricky part. The other problem is the internets are now bloated with horrible advice. I went on one site, which will remain nameless, purporting to have a few dozen recipes for infusing simple syrups. Every recipe was not only exactly the same, but the ingredient ratios were so mindblowingly stupid. It would be like making an apple pie with 1 cup sugar and 1 cup salt (instead of a pinch).
So, nothing in here will relate to other websites. It’s all trial and error mixed with a bit of intuition.
In an effort to be speedy, I will be posting first drafts of all posting as I make them. I will edit when I can, especially if any egregious errors are found. Please bear with me.
