How to prevent an attack by bar vampires

This week we are making garlic vodka! This has been done at least once before, by the Vodka God, though we are going about it in a different way. Arthur's garlic vodka, being a last minute decision, was created using minced garlic and Cîroc vodka, whereas we are infusing halved cloves of fresh garlic in our usual quintuple-distilled baseline vodka.

Brendan cuts three cloves of garlic in half. We considered slicing them further, but did not want to make the garlic flavor overwhelming; if it doesn't turn out strong enough, we may try it again with sliced garlic.

We'll give this a try in a few days. Tomorrow, check in for the first results of our Grape vodka!

That mix sounds like it should be banned under the chemials weapons act like garlic should . that stuff should be outlawed.

Hey, just letting you guys know that I am attempting this experiment with four cloves of crushed garlic. I'll let you know how it tastes when it's done infusing.

That's a lot of surface area, dude. Watch your back (and your tongue) with that one.

It turned out great. Thanks guys! It was a little strong but it seems to have mellowed out now, it has a distinctively sweet taste, actually. I like it.
