Aging, Straining, Filtering, and Drinking Your Fireball Bourbon Recipe

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for a minimum of 10 days.

After 10 days or more of aging, strain your liqueur through several layers of cheesecloth.

It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.

Step 2

Making the chili oil, to make chili oil, in a nonstick pan stir together your chili flakes and oil.

Ona very low flame warm the oil and chili flakes over low heat for about five minutes.

Remove from heat and allow the oil to cool completely before straining it through a fine-mesh sieve and transferring to a storage container. 

Stir in two drops of the chili oil. Taste and adjust the level of chili oil to your liking.
