Behind our Santa Fe Spirits Tasting Room bar we have four infusions set up: black cherry vodka, wild berry vodka, jalapeno vodka, and mint vodka. Often when people try these infusions they immediately ask if we sell bottle of them. Unfortunately we do not, but what we make sure people know is how simple infusions can be to make. Getting sick of your low-cal vodka soda with a splash of lime? There's a way to spice up that flavor while adding a negligible amount of calories to the drink. Try putting some fresh or frozen berries into the bottle, let is sit for a day or two, and voila, something new. Infusions are a quick and easy way to be creative with your cocktails as well as impress any guests you may have over at your place for cocktail hour.

In our Santa Fe Spirits tasting rooms we love experimenting with different cocktails, and with such great spirits, who wouldn't want to have some fun? However, you can't pretend that only have five spirits isn't a challenge when it comes to creating new cocktails. There's only so much you can do with five spirits to work with. So how do we come up with new and unique cocktails that can showcase our award winning products?The answer is as simple as syrup... simple syrup. Now sometimes people get confused when they see simple syrup listed as part of a cocktail recipe, but let me tell you, it's called simple for a reason. Simple syrup is a mix of sugar and water.. easy right? The ratio can vary anywhere from 1:1 to 2:1 sugar to water and the water just needs to be boiling hot. Boil water on the stove, add sugar, stir, let cool, and voila, simple syrup!
