Do you remember when it was cool to add skittles Zima? Supposedly, the Skittles would add a fruity flavor to what was already a pretty sugary drink. (Okay, so I may be dating myself with that one.)
But this rosemary infused vodka felt so much like typical early adult experiments with different alcoholic drinks. Unlike those experiments, however, it’s not about masking the flavor of the alcohol. Instead, it’s about adding to it.
And the result is fascinating.
Instead of adding sweetness, like most infused liquors, rosemary infused vodka is bursting with earthy flavors. And I’ll be honest…there’s nothing subtle about it.
If you know someone who loves to experiment with their cocktail recipes, consider giving them a bottle of rosemary-infused vodka. I bet they’ll be surprised and excited to give it a try.
A Few Notes About Rosemary Infused Vodka
- This vodka definitely has a strong flavor. Add it to your drinks sparingly until you figure out your preferred quantity.
- Most infused vodka recipes recommend steeping for several days. Add a bunch of large sprigs and turn your bottle on its side to reduce steeping time to one day.
- The rosemary inside the vodka is gorgeous at first, but quickly turns the vodka an amber brown. This is totally normal.
- If you want to gift a bottle of the vodka, make sure you add the rosemary right before gifting it, and let the recipient know to remove the rosemary within a couple days.

How to Make Rosemary Infused Vodka
- 3 large sprigs of fresh rosemary per 8 ounces vodka
- Good quality vodka
- Fill a resealable glass bottle with vodka, leaving at least the top two inches clear.
- Add the rosemary sprigs to the bottle and close the seal.
- Allow the bottle to steep for at least one day in a cool, dark location until golden amber in color.
You can make a smaller quantity of rosemary-infused vodka by setting the bottle on it's side to steep, allowing the vodka to have maximum surface area with the rosemary. Remove rosemary sprigs within 24-48 hours to avoid turning the vodka bitter.
