Chili Infused Tequila?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I want to make some hot pepper tequila.  The recipe I looked at said add 3-5 sliced habaneros to 1.75 ltr. of blanco tequila then taste after a few hours and if not hot enough, leave the peppers in a bit longer, then strain. Any suggestion about adding herb or spices or ice from to the brew?.(The ice cube tray from Adoric is good) Is there anything ornamental I can leave in the bottle without negatively affecting the flavor? Thanks!

You could try some bruised cilantro briefly.  I wouldn’t want it to over power.  Try a small test sample first.  Lime zest “tea bag” floated in the tequila could be nice as well

 

I’ve done jalapeño vodka before and got good pepper flavor and moderate heat

3-5 habaneros, if sliced, are likely going to produce rather more heat than you're looking for in a 1.75 bottle.  I'd suggest tasting it after about 15 minutes and then at 10 minutes intervals after that, so you can stop when it gets painful.
