PLEASE NOTE: I used 3 oz of peppercorns because I LOVE pepper. If you are less of a spice lover, I recommend starting with 1 oz and increasing if you desire more. My recipe was 1 litter of vodka to 3 oz of peppercorns (black, red, and white mixed). Let rest a few days to a week or until the desired flavor is achieved.

– Counteracts food poisoning.
– Stimulates digestion
Benefits of Red Pepper: – Similar to above but also used to prevent Malaria and all cold conditions.
