Fennel and Fig Infused Vodka

Angela's Refreshing Beverage of the Week
Fennel and Fig Infused Vodka
This yummy vodka can be served alone over ice, or stir it with a little sweet vermouth and you can make a wonderful martini with it. It turns into a wonderful plum color.

18 oz. Vodka
1/2 lb. dried Black Mission Figs, quartered
1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced

In an airtight container, combine the vodka, dried figs and fennel; cover and refrigerate for a week. Shake the container each day. Strain the infused vodka through a very fine strainer into a pitcher. Voila!
