We like to try lots of new flavors over here at Boozed + Infused. When out shopping for groceries, I often scour the shelves looking for ideas of things to infuse. I go to certain stores looking specifically for interesting flavors. One of my favorite stores to find different ingredients is the local Home Brewing supply store. You may be surprised to find that there are a lot of home brew stores out there, and many of them sell online.
At a recent trip to the Homebrew Exchange, I picked up bunch of fun bottles, ingredients, and some inspiration! One of these ingredients was dried heather flowers.
While I didn’t really know what heather flowers would taste like, I was excited to try a new infusion.
Heather Flower Vodka
2 TB Dried Heather flowers
1 c. Vodka
Infuse for about 7-9 days, strain and filter. Enjoy in cocktails!
The result is a lovely golden color. The flavor is only slightly floral. It has a nice taste to it, but is hard to describe. I can tell you that it makes a great cocktail… recipes will be forthcoming. In the meantime, try a heather flower infusion, or better yet let us know about something new and interesting that you have infused.

Excellent! Living in Scotland I feel this is a must-try! I’ll be up the hills collecting heather flowers just as soon as the rain stops!

Awesome! I will be interested to hear what you think, especially if you use fresh flowers since I used dried. I wonder how they would taste in bourbon…..
