Chilli Vodka - update

Tuesday, November 8th, 2005

The chillie vodka has now had several months to mature. After a few weeks it turned an interesting pale green-brown colour, while the chillies turned white. Tastes a bit sweet, also a bit acidic but not too bitter, it is a lot like Encona hot pepper sauce but not as sweet. That is if you can get over the heat - to use a Red Dwarf expression, it is like drinking molten lava.

Now almost gone (the photo below was taken a while ago) and the heat seems to be concentrating at the bottom. Now I know why they say to remove the chillies after a few weeks. Will probably end up topping it up with some unadulterated vodka, or mixing it with another flavour when I try making some of them. For anyone interested, a good website for this sort of thing is Here.
