No pic for this one, it's just not needed since this is so very simple.
1 Teaspoon of Fresh Grated Ginger
1 Cup Vodka
Add ingredients to small jar with lid.
Shake a few times, and periodically.
Allow to steep for at least 4 hours.
Filter the mix through a strainer or cheesecloth when serving, or just enjoy the little bits of ginger in your drink.
Serving Suggestion: Mix as you would in a screwdriver. The ginger adds a nice little bite to the drink.
Alternately, pour over some Vanilla Ice Cream and make an ice cream soda for big people.
As usual there is a story behind this. We were making a Ginger Pie. It means you grate up a lot of ginger, soak the stuff in rum, and bake in the oven until it is a pie that resembles a pecan pie. I don't like pecan pie, particularly, but this was a very interesting pie. Definitely not for everyone and since I like crystalline ginger, it was for me.
We had a LOT of grated ginger left over so I experimented. Grabbing a washed jelly jar from under the cabinet, I added a measured teaspoon of ginger to the jar, a cup of vodka, shook the thing and walked out to the living room. After watching a couple hours of Britcoms, a couple of old Simpsons episodes and surfing too many web pages, I got the idea to try this Ginger Vodka.
You know what? It was good. Not earth-shattering, but a very pleasant change of pace. Since I have about another four ounces of ginger, I had better make up more of this stuff to use it up.
