You'll need a bottle of vodka and some taco seasoning. That's it!

Who can say no to a delicious plate of tacos, am I right? They’re cheap, easy to make and so versatile when it comes to toppings. Just add a side of pico de gallo or guacamole and suddenly you’ve got a meal.

I normally recommend making homemade margaritas for Taco Tuesday. But if you prefer a savory drink, it’s possible to make taco-infused vodka.

How to Make Taco Vodka

You’ll need:

  • 750mL bottle of vodka
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning

Step 1: Add the taco seasoning

To start, open your vodka and grab a funnel. Use the funnel to pour a packet of taco seasoning into the vodka, making sure all the powder makes it into the bottle.

Step 2: Let rest

You need to let the seasoning infuse into the vodka for around 3 hours. It’s a long wait, we know.

Step 3: Strain the vodka

Finally, after the 3 hours have passed, come back to your masterpiece. You need to strain out the bits of taco seasoning from the vodka. You can do that with a piece of cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer.

It’s time to grab a shot glass and pour yourself a shot of spicy victory. You’ve earned it.

How to Share Your Infused Vodka

Now that you’ve learned such a valuable recipe, why not give it a shot and share it with your friends? You can pack shots in mini mason jars like this. Don’t forget to include chips, guac and a few wedges of lime in each spicy care package!
