Sous Vide Chile Tomato Infused Vodka Recipe
This recipe uses guajillo and chipotle chiles to infuse the vodka with smokey and spicy flavors that complement most Bloody Mary mixes. This vodka is very spicy and made to be mixed but it can be tweaked for a more mellow, sipping style infusion. Just cut the amount of chile peppers used in half, or remove the seeds and membranes.

Chile Tomato Infused Vodka Instructions
Preheat a water bath to 140°F (60°C).
Combine the chiles, tomatoes, and vodka in a sous vide bag or Mason jar then seal and place in the water bath. Heat the infusion for 1 to 3 hours.
Prepare an ice bath with 1/2 ice and 1/2 water. Remove the bag or Mason jar from the water bath and place in the ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the vodka and store in a sealed container.
