Cayenne Infused Vodka, courtesy of Chef Nathan Richard

To be used as an ingredient in cocktails.


2 fresh cayenne peppers, halved lengthwise* (or more, if desired)
1 (1-liter) bottle Oryza Vodka


In a large clean jar, add peppers 
and vodka. Cover and let stand at least 3 days.
Strain through a fine-mesh sieve, and discard solids. Pour vodka back into the bottle and seal. The vodka will keep at room temperature for 3 to 
6 months. If vodka tastes too spicy, add additional vodka.


*Jalapeño peppers may be substituted.
