Friday night I decanted (poured through a coffee filter, to be more accurate) and tasted the garlic vodka to mixed results. First, I tried it straight. I liked the garlic taste, but it didn't go well with the kick of the Cîroc – two things which were good separately, but didn't seem to work well together (if/when¹ I make garlic vodka again, I'll have to choose/distill a smoother base vodka which won't try to overshadow with the infusion). The next thing I did was get a "chaser" to go with the garlic vodka – I nuked a batch of Totino Pizza Rolls and alternated eating them with sips of the garlic vodka. That actually worked nicely.
