Author Notes: When planning our family’s fourth of July this year, I decided there was nothing more American than a cream soda. It didn’t take me very long to come up with a plan: a spiked cherry vanilla cream soda. Infused vodka is the perfect way to make this dream cocktail a reality.
Infused vodka is really the most simple “recipe” you can make to take your cocktail game to the next level. Really, the sky is the limit when deciding what you want to use to infuse. All you need is a jar, some vodka and your inspiration of choice. —My Stir Crazy Kitchen
