Vanilla Vodka Drinks

Vanilla Vodka Drinks
by Allison

I’m a vodka girl. I admit it.  When I saw the beautiful Tahitian Vanilla Beans from Marx Foods, I immediately wanted to stuff them into a bottle of vodka. I let it sit for a month (agitating every so often) and voila! Vanilla vodka! It had a beautiful smell to it, sweet and delicate. I’m partial to potato vodka, particularly the brand Luksusowa.  It has a lovely velvety soft feel. Here’s what I ended up doing with my bottle.

I wanted to experiment with some chocolate and espresso martinis, but the bottle emptied itself before I got there.


*Most of these recipes can be found in some form or another in all corners of the internet. Drinks Mixer was a great inspiration.

Creamsicle

1 ½ oz vanilla vodka
3 oz OJ
Shake with ice. Strain into ice filled rocks glass.


Vanilla Mango Mist

¾ oz vanilla vodka
¾ oz mango vodka
½ oz triple sec
club soda
mint leaves
Pour vanilla vodka and mango vodka into an ice filled rocks glass. Tear up a few mints leaves and stir into the vodka. Top with club soda and a few whole mint leaves. 

Vanilla Pineapple Martini

1 ½  oz vanilla vodka
3 oz pineapple juice
pineapple chunks to garnish

Shake with ice. Strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with pineapple chunks. If you have the forethought, soak the pineapple chunks in regular vodka for a few days.

  2. It's from Russia and it has a distinguished past to it. It has restricted forms and you should part with $4,150 to appreciate the vodka. best wine clubs
