Kristopher's Award-Winning Vodka Recipe

And the winner of the Vodka-Infusion contest was . . . Kristopher Moreau! He got to walk home with 50 smackers. Right on! Scroll down for his award-winning recipe.

We had a dozen people sampling 8 different vodkas, which in retrospect was kind of perfect. It was a small enough group that we were able to sample each flavor together as a group, with lots of loud toasting and communal vodka reaction faces.

In my initial write-up for this party, I recommended that you limit tastes to 1 Tbsp. HAH! Ahahahaahahah. Ahah. That would be insanity. Trust me, approximately one teaspoon is really all the sample size you need to know what you like. And after the tasting you will still have enough liver stamina to enjoy mixed drinks with your favorite flavors.

Also, someone asked me why I didn't have Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan on queue. Brilliant suggestion! I highly recommend screening a movie like From Russia with Love on mute, and then once the party starts dying down, roll right on into an afterparty with our friend Borat.

Here is Kristopher's recipe - simple and effective!

Kristopher's Blueberry Kiwi Vodka

1 pint blueberries
3 kiwi fruits
1 quart of Smirnoff vodka

1. Peel and cube the kiwi fruits. 
2. Cut a small incision in each blueberry.
3. Put the blueberries, kiwi and vodka in a sealed jar.
4. Store it in a dark place at room temperature for 6 days, shaking once every 24 hours.

  1. May I note that Kristopher, the winner, is holding a bloody mary drink in his hand, made with basil-infused vodka by yours truly. (Just needed to pat myself on the back)
