last year i made limoncillo to give as gifts, now i'm running out of time so this looks perfect? three hours to make a horseradish vodka? sign me up! i'll head to the liquor store shortly.

What great gifts! I love those bottles... where could I find some? I have yet to check out the Russian Tea Time... hopefully soon since that menu sounds wonderfully comforting in this weather we're having!

Hi Kickpleat -- It really is great bet for a last minute gift. Throw in some pickles and pumpernickel bread and you will have quite a night on your hands!

Joelen, I bought the bottles at the Container Store on North Ave. They are listed as "glass flasks" on their website. (The ones I found in the store differed a bit from the picture on the website.) They ended up being perfect for this project. Definitely check out Russian Tea Time. It is one of my favorite places in Chicago and I don't visit them nearly enough. I always leave enormously full and happy.

What a fantastic idea - I definitely would have done this as gifts if I knew I could infuse so quickly! And thanks for the heads up on Russian Tea Time (am just finding out that I lovelovelove Russian food!) - I'll be in Chicago a lot in the next year or two so will probably be scouring your blog for places to check out.

We recently made a cucumber-cilantro vodka, and then made cocktails by mixing it with simple syrup, muddled limes, and a bit of fresh cilantro. You can also throw in some mint. They were great! Of course, I used the cheapest, harshest vodka possible. Might be better with something a bit more upscale. ;)

oh, and soda water. forgot that part.

Hi Jesse. I was surprised how it was as well. I think the gifts were a hit. I hope you enjoy Russian Tea Time. I love Eastern European food as well and it is one of my favorite places. Have fun in Chicago. It is a great place to eat!

Hi Cindy, cucumber cilantro vodka sounds excellent. I will have to give that a try next time. The drink you made with it sounds very refreshing. I am going to try that one in the spring. Thanks!
