    Oh -- sorry -- I think the vodka starts tasting (faintly) of apricots about a week or two after you add the 'cots.
    You can even leave them for a very long time, like, a year, if you're very very very patient.

    The best possible way to do this would be to let the apricots infuse about 3 months. That would mean you would be straining the vodka in the late Fall, or early Winter in the Pacific Northwest.
    Strain out the fruit, using a colander for the first straining, and a cheesecloth or coffee filter for the second straining. The second straining will leave you with a nice clear pale orange'ish vodka.

    You will be able to enjoy a cocktail that tastes of summer even if the seasons have changed and the days are shorter and much cooler.
