Vodka Infusions: Toffee and Bubblegum

2014-04-19 19.15.01

Anyone who has tried to make cocktails in Ireland will already know how hard it can be to find specialty spirits and ingredients. I’m planning a few recipes that needed flavoured vodka, but rather than buy online for ridiculous prices, I decided to flavour them myself. The concept is the same as that for Skittles vodka, which many of you will have seen already.

Bubblegum:
This one is super simple but requires some time to sit. Cut 10 or so pieces of gum into smaller chunks and add vodka, roughly 6:1 ratio. Leave overnight or for a couple of days, shaking every so often. Then strain into a bottle.

Toffee:
Break up the toffee into small chunks and put into a microwave-safe bowl. Pour in a little water, roughly enough to cover the toffee, and microwave for about 3 minutes, stirring every so often. When the toffee has melted, pour vodka over the top, again around 5/6:1, and shake. You’re pretty much good to go.

Cocktail Ideas:

  • Toffee: Mix with apple juice and cinnamon or Goldschlager for an apple pie treat
  • Toffee: Mix with Coca Cola for a rich, sweet drink
  • Toffee: Mix with Baileys over ice
  • Bubblegum: Mix with soda water for a simple cocktail
  • Bubblegum: Make a shot with bubblegum and skittles vodka!

My favourite cocktail of all time requires toffee vodka, so stay tuned for that recipe next week!

Thanks for reading ❤
