macerate [steep] for 3 weeks, bottle and age for 7 months.
In all cases I substituted 100 proof vodka for the 95 proof alcohol. I also macerated these mixtures in 32 oz canning jars with very limited airspace. After the macerated time period, I strained once or twice with coffee filters, bottled, corked, and sealed with wax. I sterilized my bottles (boiling water) and corks (potassium bisulphite) and thought I was being quite careful in this fun activity.
