Making Infusions with Tito Beveridge

The Tito’s story started in a mason jar.

Back in the day, before perfecting his own pot-distilled spirit, before building a distillery was even a far-off dream, Tito created homemade vodka infusions. Every time a holiday or housewarming came along, he’d buy the cheapest vodka off the shelf. Then he’d pick up a few fresh ingredients, toss them in a jar, fill it up with his liquor store haul, and craft his own infusions to give as gifts. Sure, he was broke, but he knew how to make people smile with spirits and wouldn’t let a price tag stop him.

Tito spent long days and even longer nights perfecting the recipe for Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Never without a cup of joe and a taste-test here and there. It only makes sense to combine the two.

  • Slice open vanilla beans.
  • Add all ingredients to a glass container.
  • Let sit in a cool dark place for 2 weeks, stirring occasionally.
  • Strain when the infusion reaches desired flavor.
  • Pro-tip: The flavor gets even better after a month or so…if you can wait that long

We all know Tito’s preferred way of drinking his vodka is a classic Tito’s Water Lemon. So, consider this an ode to one of the greats.

  • Slice lemons and drop into a glass container.
  • Fill with Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
  • Let sit for 4 days.
  • Strain when the infusion reaches desired flavor.
