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

Step

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.
