Farmers Market Vodka Garden:
Over the centuries, vodka has been distilled from potatoes, grains and fruit – anything the farmer had left over at the end of harvest. And because vodka is a neutral spirit, it can be infused with all the flavors of the farmers market. Try a lighter, fresher version of the classic Bloody Mary by simply smashing fresh tomatoes in the shaker and straining. Or infuse vodka with peppers and herbs to preserve the flavor of the harvest.
Pepper-infused vodka: Slice Cherry Pick peppers; remove seeds and ribs. Fill clean jar with peppers and vodka. Soak 2-5 days. Strain and refrigerate.
