To make habanero-infused vodka, add half a habanero to about 4 cups of vodka and let it sit for 24 hours. If you like it extra spicy, the restaurant suggests you add the whole pepper.
Make simple syrup by combining 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup granulated sugar and heating until sugar dissolves. Cool before using. Any extra simple syrup may be refrigerated for up to two weeks.
