How Tom Make Apple Pie Bourbon Infusions
If your using a 12 oz jar you will want to use about half an apple. You will Want to cut out the core and use medium slices. Then, you throw your cinnamon stick and your vanilla bean sick into the mix. The vanilla bean is completely option, but it really takes the flavor to the next level.
Depending on how stout you want this mix to taste, you can choose to add water. If you want it to be a stronger beverage just skip this all together. If you want it to come off a little more smooth, you can add about an ounce of water. After that, you will want to fill the jar about 8/10 full of Bourbon.
After you seal the jar, its gonna take about a week for all the flavors to fuse together.
