Thanks all. Should have asked before I did it!

You learn by doing.  The rest of us did.

Seriously, though, unless you try and it  taste the vodka you'll never know.  Tons of people use vodka tinctures and like them.

For what it's worth, I've used vodka tinctures for vanilla flavor.  8oz of vodka and two split vanilla beans.   My results were a mellow vanilla background flavor and no vodka.   I have a well stocked bar and can tell you that not all vodka is the same.   Some are very neutral--  my taste buds are not so refined to taste 7.5 oz  (after straining) of neutral vodka flavor in 600+ oz of brew.   See what works for you--
