And speaking of responsible drinking, let’s end with a funny anecdote. My friends and I once decided to try making our own vodka infusions, thinking it would be a fun and creative way to mix up our drinks. We ended up with a variety of flavored vodkas, including one made with jalapeno peppers that we dubbed “The Inferno.” Let’s just say that one was a bit too spicy for most of us, and we learned our lesson to be more careful with our infusion ingredients. Live and learn, right?

So go forth and mix up some delicious vodka cocktails, and remember to have fun (but also be safe)! Cheers!
