Habanero-infused vodka

What I really wanted to make was habanero-infused mezcal--that's the really smoky tequila. Smoke + habanero = win.

But I didn't have any, and only a little regular tequila. So I tried vodka, instead.

I sliced open a habanero and dropped it into a pint jar full of vodka, and let it sit for a couple of days.

It already smells strongly of habanero--of course, the longer you let it sit, the hotter it will get.

What should I use this for, you ask?

Why, a kick-ass Bloody Mary, of course, with Sriracha bitters.
