Want to spice up an ordinary cocktail? Then try swapping out regular vodka with pepper infused vodka.
While you buy one of several brands of pepper vodka available, you can also easily make your own at home.
Simply add 2 tablespoons of slightly cracked peppercorns to your favorite brand of vodka. Allow the mixture to sit for one week, gently stirring or shaking the container several times during the process. Once it has infused strain out the peppercorns and enjoy.
