This easy homemade infused gin recipe calls for two rarer peppercorns; Cambodian Kampot peppercorns and pink peppercorns.
While authentic gin requires a second distillation after infusion, don’t let that stop you from creating gin at home. This homemade style of gin is often called compound gin, made from vodka and spices. It may not be clear like authentic gin, but it is just as flavorful.

Put juniper in a quart jar, pour vodka. Cap the jar tightly and let it infuse for twelve hours or overnight.
After twelve hour pre-soak, add the rest of the herbs and spices to the vodka. Let sit and infuse for 36 to 72 hours.
Strain the infused gin into another jar using a fine mesh sieve. Store in a bottle or jar in a cool, dark place for up to a year.
When serving, dust the rim of your glass with crushed pink peppercorns. You can crush the pink peppercorns with the side of a chef’s knife or pan.
