Homemade infused Kiwi and Lime Vodka

I was out shopping and thinking about the success of my Homemade Vanilla Vodka and saw 12 Kiwis for £1, it lead me to experiment, how about kiwi infused vodka?

I bought a bottle of vodka and as I’d be adding Kiwi chunks to it increasing the liquid volume I had to tip some vodka out. I wanted to remove the label and write my own words on the bottle so I used steam and the rough end of a sponge to remove the glue.

Once the label was removed I started dicing the kiwi chunks.

Kiwi chunksI had the idea of adding a bit of lime zest to the Kiwi Vodka. By using a flame to release the oils out of the peal I placed the peel in the bottle with the kiwi chunks.

muddled the kiwi chunks to release the juices of the fruit.

Sugar addedadded a tiny bit of sugar to offset the bitterness of the lime and the strong tart of the kiwi.

Kiwi and Lime Vodka Finally sealed the bottle then shook it vigorously. I’ll leave it for a week to allow the flavours to really sink in but, I feel like mixing this with lemonade and mango juice.
