Alicia and her sister Eileen recently started Boozed + Infused, and already they’re building a vibrant pocket community of infusing enthusiasts. You know a blog is well on its way when posts have comments, and Boozed + Infused even gets nerdy comments from other infusers: Awesome!

Even if you’re not in PDX, you’ll love Boozed + Infused, and you’ll be rewarded with epic coolness points at all the summer barbecues you go to when you show up with homemade coconut liqueur or tamarind-orange gin.
You’re still here.
