How To Make Vanilla Vodka
This VideoJug short film instructs you on how to make vanilla infused vodka without the gritty taste and the vanilla pods seeds releasing into the liquor.
Hello, my name is Ali from Mixology Events. We specialize in cocktail mastering classes for large and small group, and I am here today to go through some infused and flavored vodkas. Okay, so we going to make vanilla infused vodka.
Now, we are going take two vanilla pods to one bottle of vodka. So, what we are not looking for is to score the vanilla pod, it's quite the common mistake to do that, because what is going to happen is that all seeds are going to come out from inside the vanilla pod and it's going to give us quite a gritty taste vanilla vodka. What we're looking for is the oil from the vanilla pod to infuse into the vodka.
That will give us our vanilla tasting vodka. So, what we do is just take our two vanilla pods and stick them straight into our bottle of vodka and we can leave it there for 5 to 7 days. We have to keep our eye on this to make sure nothing splits open, because the pods - the seeds will start to release into the vodka, that's not what we're looking for.
So, just pop this on the shelf and leave it for 5 to 7 days, keeping your eye on it and when you are happy with the color change and the pods are not opened, you can take the pods out and then we got our vanilla infused vodka. After about 5 to 7 days, the oil has come out of the vanilla pods and fused with the vodka. This works really well, very popular with martini style cocktails.
You can also enjoy it straight up as you get a powerful vanilla taste from the vodka. That's how we make vanilla infused vodka. .
