Infused Vodka Cooking Club

Nancy hosted cooking club this month, and we all infused our own alcohol! I made orange cranberry vodka.

It was so scientific! We decanted our liquids into little bottles through a funnel.

And then applied labels!

Check out the lineup! We had clementine vodka, coconut pineapple rum, coffee vodka, pear nutmeg vodka, cranberry orange vodka, and cardamom simple syrup.

And the FOOD!! Summer made an appetizer with cheesy grits and shrimp!

And a delicious pomegranate martini using her cardamom syrup.

I brought a salad with oranges, radishes, sunflower seeds and avocado. With rosemary dressing.

Valerie made this wine cheese bread. It was SO GOOD. Seriously perfection. What more could you ever want besides wine, cheese, and bread?!? I would like to eat this for every meal for my whole life.

LOOK at those little pockets of hot delicious cheese.

Valerie made gnocchi, and Suzanne made a mushroom cream sauce.

The gnocchi fell apart, but it didn't matter because it tasted SO GOOD. Rich and creamy and delicious. Perfect combo. Oh and then there was some more BREAD!!!!!

Tasting Nancy's coconut pineapple rum! It made us want to be by the pool.

Suzanne making a cocktail with her coffee vodka.

And to top it all off, a classic cheesecake from Yumi. What a night! Delicious as always!
