Vodka infused with fruit makes a nice gift or addition to the home bar. When infusing, choose a vodka of medium quality. Top-shelf vodkas taste good enough to serve on their own. Low-quality vodkas taste fairly horrible no matter how you try and dress them up. If apples aren't your fruit of choice, infuse your vodka with berries or tropical fruits instead.

Things you need
- Vodka, medium-quality
- Fresh apples
- Container with lid
- Empty liquor bottle with lid
Slice apples, removing the cores and seeds but leaving the skin on. Place the slices into a container with a lid that seals.
Pour vodka into the container until the liquid covers the apples. Put the lid on the container and set it aside in a cool, dry place.
Shake the container every few days to stir up the vodka and apples. Let the apples steep for at least two weeks, but up to a month.
When the vodka is properly infused, pour the liquid into a clean liquor bottle with lid. Pour it through a cheesecloth strainer to make sure no apple bits end up in the final product. Put a lid on the liquor bottle and store it in a cool, dry place until you are ready to use it.
Discard the apple. You could eat it but since fruit absorbs alcohol as it soaks, it would taste strongly of pure vodka, which would be too strong of a snack for most.
