My wife is a big fan of Moscow Mules so I often try to make fun variations of them to mix it up. It's normally made with vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer that is combined and then served over ice. I like to take the ginger and lime flavors and infuse them directly into the vodka for a spicy, citrusy infusion that can be mixed into cocktails or sipped as a flavored martini.
Lightly scrub the outside of the limes then remove the zest with a vegetable peeler or zester. Make sure little to no pith came off as well, using a paring knife to remove any.
Put the lime zest and ginger in a Mason jar. Pour the vodka over the top, making sure everything is covered by the vodka. Seal the jar and place in a cupboard or cabinet and let sit for at least 3 to 6 days or up to a few weeks, shaking the bottle every day or two. Strain the vodka before using.
