This infused vodka boasts a pale golden hue and a bittersweet anise taste. Choose a high-quality vodka for best results, and use in place of Pernod or Absinthe. Recipe adapted from Beyond The North Wind by Darra Goldstein.

How to Make It


Pour vodka into a wide-mouth 1-quart jar, reserving original bottle. Strip tarragon leaves from coarse stems, discarding stems. Chop tarragon leaves and mint leaves; place leaves in a small bowl, and stir in lemon juice and honey. Let mixture stand until leaves soften and wilt, about 20 minutes; add to vodka in jar. Seal jar; let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Strain; discard solids. Pour strained vodka into reserved bottle using a funnel. Chill before serving. Store in freezer up to 2 months.
