Chili & Horseradish Vodka (aka Bloody Mary Vodka)

This spicy home-infused vodka recipe not only creates the ideal vodka for a Bloody Mary or a spicy garden Vodka Martini - it also simultaneously creates boozy grape tomatoes to garnish your cocktails with. I love a double duty recipe! The Chili & Horseradish Vodka is used in my Blonde Mary Martini in the Bloody Mary Chapter in Cocktail Chameleon (pg. 14).
