Author Notes: Homemade infused vodka is a technique of long tradition in Scandinavia and one of the simplest drink experiments you can try in a home kitchen. Buy some good everyday vodka (Skyy or Absolut), pour it in a jar, and add fruit, berries, or herbs.Loulies

Serves: enough

Ingredients

  • 10 green cardamom pods
