Gather your friends over for a night they will never (scratch that) – may forget!
Here’s how you do it. About five days before the party, prepare the fruit vodka samples. Then, the day of the party, strain the vodka and put them in beautiful glass canisters. Don’t forget to label them so your guests know what they are sampling!
I think this is a fun and different idea for a party. I plan on doing it in the next few weeks with some of my girlfriends. In the meantime, I wanted to test out the following flavors:
- Watermelon Mint
- Strawberry Lemon
- Cucumber Mint
These best part about the vodka is that it’s a preservative and if you can strain out all of the fruit or candy you’re infusing it with, it will last for a long time
Materials and Ingredients:
- Fruit and herbs
- Your favorite vodka (I found that 750 ml comes out to be about 3 cups.)
- Mason jars
- Glass-sealed bottles
- Paper towel or cheesecloth
- Funnel or spouted measuring cup
- 2” Clear matte inkjet circle labels OL5375CJ

Step 1: Cut up your fruit.
Step 2: Place the cut fruit in a Mason jar. I put about 1 ½ cups of fruit/herbs in each jar.
Step 3: Pour 1 cup of vodka in the jar.
Step 4: Shake and stick in fridge for 5 days. Be sure to shake the vodka once each day.
Step 5: After 5 days, pour the vodka into a strainer and have it seep into a bowl or measuring cup.
Step 6: Strain the vodka a second time through a paper towel or cheesecloth to remove any pulp that may have seeped through the first round.
Step 7: Pour your infused vodka into your bottle.
Step 8: Attach your label to your bottle.
Here are some other fruity flavors to try:
- Blueberry and orange
- Raspberry and lemon
- Watermelon and basil
If you want to experiment with candy, you only need 24 hours in the refrigerator.
- Red Hots
- Jolly Ranchers
- Gummy Bears
Choose lots of colors to give your guests a rainbow-range of flavors to experiment with.
