Hot & Cold Vodka for the Holidays
It's super easy to make. First pick a nice vodka. I use Tito's (made in Austin, Texas) because it's both super-smooth and inexpensive (around $19.95 for 750 ml). Pour out a shot and set aside (or shoot--it's not going back in the bottle). Take 4 very fresh, unblemished habanero chilies and quarter them lengthwise. Carefully pare out and discard the seeds. Stuff the quarters into the bottle, replace the cap, and shake once. Place in the freezer and let the flavor and burn develop for about 3 days. Keep in the freezer until just before serving.
