Oatmeal Cookie-Infused Bourbon
375 mL (1/2 bottle of bourbon)
4 soft, homemade style oatmeal raisin cookies, broken into large pieces
Place the cookies in the bottom of a mason jar and add 375 mL of bourbon. Make sure the bourbon covers the cookies.Let the jar sit, agitating the mixture about every 8-10 hours for about 30 hours. It will look a mess in the jar, but that means the flavors are melded.When finished infusing, strain the mixture through a metal sieve. Then, line a large metal sieve with a coffee filter and strain again. You may have to let the mixture sit out for several hours or overnight.Once strained, store in the fridge in a clean jar or bottle.
