It’s been too long, hasn’t it?
To quote Miranda Priestly, ‘tales of your incompetence do not interest me’.
And in a similarly sharp vain we bring you Red Hot Chilli
Around November of last year we decided that we’d make homemade Christmas presents for our friends and family members out of a desire to create and out of a desire to, you know, still afford the tickets/oyster top-ups to see those friends & family members.
You’ll need a 1L bottle of Vodka*, 2 fat red Chillies (plus some regular chillies for the bottles) and bottles of your choosing. We trawled Amazon and picked some edge-y ones but it’s really up to you.
Slice up the chillies and put directly into the bottle of vodka (you might need to have a slurp first… put it in a glass if you must). Shake.
Leave for 4 – 5 hours
Strain out the chillies. You can distribute the vodka into your bottles at this point or put into the original bottle at a later date. As with all vodka, store in the freezer.
* We knew the vodka would have to be of a half decent quality for this to realistically be given as a present so I want to tell you something that I hope you shall forgive me for in advance. I sought advice from an article on The Telegraph website (I know, I know), an article titled ’10 vodkas put to the test’ (for if there are greater snobs than the journalists of The Telegraph then I do not want to hear of it) and their result surprisingly put Glen’s vodka above Belvedere, above Absolut, and above Grey Goose — the decision was thus made.
