Have you tried making your own infused vodka? So easy, right? Lemon Head Infused Vodka make a fantastic cocktail with a fun spin!
Making an infused vodka has ALWAYS been in my head. I have been drinking Vanilla infused Vodka since the 90’s (that doesn’t make me old does it?). I love the extra flavor that you get from having a flavored liquor. YUM.
For my birthday last year I got so many gifts of lemon heads (a sick obsession of mine) that I had been planning on making Lemon Head Vodka for a LONG time! I finally did it. It’s definitely on the sweet side, but paired with the right ingredients makes an awesome cocktail.
My last side note is that it ends up looking like Mountain Dew, so be careful where you leave it!
Lemon Head Vodka
- 2 C of vodka
- 1/4 C of Lemon Heads
- zest of 1-2 lemons (mine was large so I just used one)
- Put vodka into a mason jar or a jar that closes tightly
- Drop in Lemon Heads
- Zest lemon into jar
- Let sit for at least 3 days (mine sat for 1 week)
- Shake it up and then strain through a fine strainer

I love infusing liquors. Lemon heads are a great idea to add to vodka! I bet it tastes delicious in mixed drinks.
It does! Stay tuned for a cocktail recipe!!!
Oh yummy! I didn’t even know you could do this. : )
you can – and it is worth it! TONS of fun drinks!
Love the idea of making Lemon Head Vodka for gifts. Once made, does it need to be refrigerated or will it keep at room temp. without spoiling? Thanks!
