The infusion process takes about 2 days. This time allows the vodka to absorb all the flavors. Keep in mind, the coloring from the licorice will absorb into the vodka, so you'll notice the alcohol will start to turn black.
Once you have the desired taste, pour the infused vodka back into the original, cleaned out vodka bottle. Add several drops of the black food coloring, to get the color you want, and gently shake to mix it through.
Put a pour spout on it for easy cocktail mixing! *poof!* You've just made my Special Black Magic Vodka!
Keep this special vodka fresh by storing in the fridge or freezer. Remember, this recipe is strictly for grown up witches and warlocks only!
