Tea-Infused Vodka


This weekend my siblings are biking 37 miles for diabetes in the Tour de Cure.  This disease has affected my family, please consider donating.  If you donate, I'll bake you cookies.  See details here.  This is your last week to donate!

I had never heard of tea-infused vodka until I saw it on a cocktail menu last week.  It was paired with lemonade and I had to try it.  As it turns out, making tea-infused vodka could not be any easier, and it's quick!

This vodka is so perfect with ice and lemonade.  It's dangerously good!  You don't even taste the alcohol.  I think I found my go to summer cocktail.  I've quickly become obsessed!


Tea-Infused Vodka
Adapted from Build/Make/Craft/Bake

1 pint vodka
2 tea bags black tea (or 1 Tbsp loose leaf)

Pour the vodka into a clean mason jar (or any airtight container).  Drop in the tea.  Seal the jar and shake.  Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.  Strain the tea-infused vodka into another airtight container (a coffee filter and funnel work great) and store in the fridge, freezer, or at room temperature out of the sun.

  1. Seriously, it's THAT easy?!?! And quick?!?! This IS a dangerous recipe!! I'm heading to the store today to get some vodka. Look out summer!

    Only bad thing, this might work against your "drink more wine" goal...ha ha!

    1. haha, that's true! Maybe I should have made my goal, "drink casually more often, no reason to save it for special occasions". I'd be doing great!

  2. Add a crap ton of sugar and you have that southern staple-sweet tea vodka :)

    1. No need for sugar when you add the lemonade, it already tastes like a sweet tea with lemon! Though, you're right, it's still probably not enough sugar for the Southerners.

  3. I used to use morning recovery hangover drink to recover from a hangover, but I couldn’t stomach the taste once I was already hungover. I recently started using Detoxicated hangover supplements (happy that they’re in a pill so there’s no weird taste) and they work great. Got them on Amazon on Sale, you should check it out if you’re interested.
