What did you expect, bris?

Sounds like a horrendous combination.

I think the longer you leave it the more mellow the flavour i.e. it can be a bit harsh immediately after straining although tbf it's still bloody lovely!

Garlic Vodka? No, just no...

Once had chilli vodka at vodka revs, that was seriously hot, you expect a kick but it was mouth burning bad

I like chilli vodka, and in fact we often drink gin (usually Ophir but Lidl's own brand spiced is also good) with half a red chilli in and a squeeze of lime.
