Put that skittles Vodka and those bloated alcoholic gummy bears away. We’re taking you to the next level with some seriously tasty infused booze.

Injecting flavor into your liquor is actually super easy and generally takes only one to three days. It’s also a really great way to level up your booze and make it look and taste super fancy. Plus, you get totally unique flavors that will go a long way in spicing up your cocktails. Basically, it wins on every level.

1. Pineapple and Red Pepper Vodka

This sweet, spicy booze is super versatile and would be great in a lot of classic vodka drinks, but we really love it with Dr. Pepper and a little bit of lime.

2. Orange and Vanilla Bourbon

Drink straight, as you would an old fashioned or just mix as you would any other cocktail — it would be great in a whiskey sour or with ginger ale.

3. Peach and Pecan Bourbon

Drink this one straight — pour it into a double old fashioned glass and garnish with a peach peel.

4. Jalapeno-Infused Tequila

This is made for margaritas, but it’s great with pretty much any tequila cocktail.

5. Rosemary, Ginger, and Asian Pear Vodka

Infuse all three together (we recommend it!) and serve with honey, lemon, sugar, a tiny grating of nutmeg, and top with soda water for a stunningly tasty cocktail.

If you’re doing them separately, we love the ginger with pretty much anything, but our two favorites are for kicking up your Moscow Mules or mixing it with fresh tangerine juice (two tangerines worth) and a splash of lychee syrup (you can get it from the can). Top off with ginger ale. Recipe here.

The rosemary vodka would be great with either grapefruit juice or tonic water.

6. Cherry Vodka

This versatile liquor would be great in any of your favorite vodka cocktails. We love it mixed with limeade or cream soda.

7. Strawberry Basil Vodka

Add a spoonful or two to desserts, blend into a milkshake or just mix as you would a regular fruity vodka cocktail — you might want to use a little less sugar/syrup than usual if the strawberries are very sweet.

8. Mango Tequila

Enjoy this in a margarita or a with ginger and cilantro.

9. Bacon and Habanero Infused Vodka

This mouthwateringly savory and spicy concoction makes the perfect Bloody Mary.

10. Watermelon Vodka

 

This gorgeous infused vodka is not only a crowd-pleaser, but it also makes for a super easy and cute gift. 

11. Same-Day Bacon Bourbon

This would be great in classic whiskey cocktails like old-fashioneds. Bonus: swap out the sugar for honey or maple syrup.

12. Blueberry Vodka

Perfect with lemonade.

13. Vanilla Honey Ginger Whiskey

You can’t go wrong mixing this with ginger ale or ginger beer!
