my roommate wants to infuse rye for her boyfriend's xmas present. it's his favorite liquor and he is a big fan of old fashions.
i have only infused vodka, and i'm wondering if anyone has any pointers or suggestions about infusing rye.
she is considering using anise, but wanted to make a few other "flavors."
i suggested orange peels, cherries, or vanilla bean.
what do you think?
your comments would be much appreciated.
