*Oatmeal-Infused Karlsson’s Gold Vodka



Toast the oats in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until aromatic and just beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a large jar and add the vodka. Let stand for 12 to 24 hours. Strain, pressing the oats to remove as much liquid as possible, and rebottle.
