I'm getting into liquor infusions and I'm really excited about it. Right now I have a bourbon infusing with tangerine and vanilla bean. I'm looking forward to serving it on Thanksgiving. I'm starting my first limoncello batch soon. I'm starting to think about complex flower and spice layering combinations. I have a feeling this will be my new obsession.
I want to infuse a bourbon with rose petals, but I'm a little stymied on the details. What kind of rose would be good for this and what is the best way to wash it first without losing the oils?
Any experiences with flower-infused liquor would be welcome.
I'm also looking for your general advice about liquor infusing.
I am a biochemistry student so technical explanations and recipes are welcome.
