How To Infuse

  1. Fill your jar with your favorite spirit. If filling The Southern Spirit Infuse jars, use 16 ounces of alcohol; if you are using Camp Craft, fill your jar with 12 ounces. Liquor recommendations are listed with each recipe below.
  1. Screw cap back on tightly and place in the refrigerator.
  1. Wait three days.
  1. On the third day, strain the liquid out of the infuse jar into another jar, especially spicy ones!
  1. Optional: Fill the infuse jar again with the same liquor if you want to infuse twice, making even more cocktails!

Do not infuse longer than three days with any spicy flavors such as the Mango Habanero. The longer you infuse, the spicier it gets!

 

Mocktail

Want to make a zero-proof (no alcohol) mocktail? Fill the jar with hot boiling water instead of liquor and follow the same instructions.

 

Life Of The Infuse Jar

One year without infusing.
