Summers are busy! While there is so much to infuse, there are so many great things to do in the sun. So these past few weeks have slipped by, and for the last seven days I was hiking and camping around remote Southeastern Oregon along with herds of pronghorn, coyotes, lizards, and little else.
Now that I’m back into civilization, it is time to post something that I infused back in the chaos of summer.
1 1/2 c. Chopped Cantaloupe
1 1/2 c. Vodka
2 TB Simple Syrup (or more to taste)
Place cantaloupe and vodka in a glass jar and seal. Shake and allow to infuse for 2-3 weeks. Add Simple Syrup and let it sit for another 2-3 weeks for the flavors to mellow.
That’s it! Cheers!
