I feel like it’s time to elevate my cocktail game. I’ve been slacking on my booze, which is strange because, by all accounts, I ought to be barrel deep in vodka. Just swimming in tequila. Gargling rum after my post-meal tooth brushing.  Yet I’m not. I’m taking the hits of the universe stone-cold sober.

Sober.

What do we know about Chile de Arbol? It’s a small pepper, measuring about 2-3 inches long. It starts out green and turns a vivid red as it matures. You can find it fresh or dried.  Let’s talk about heat. Chile de Arbol is as hot as Cayenne, measuring around 10,000 – 30,000 on the Scoville scale. Basically, they’re as hot as Tobasco sauce. Not super-hot, just a nice spicy kick. Dig?

I found dried Chile de Arbol in my local supermarket and immediately thought vodka. This infusion is very straightforward – Two ingredients: Chile de Arbol and vodka infused for at least a week. You shake it once a day. It will make you feel accomplished like you’re contributing to the infusion. But you’re not. Not really. The chiles release their spicy goodness and color into the vodka whether you shake it or not.
