This is the last liquor post for a while, promise!
To complete the wedding trifecta of liqueurs and liquors, is an Oat and Honey Vodka, I found at The Chow,
which I’m really hoping tastes like breakfast. not quite, but it does have a really smooth oat flavour to it.
Oat and Honey Vodka
330mL vodka (use some reasonable stuff, not Smirnoff!)
75g local Bulkley-Valley honey
3/4 cup organic rolled oats
Infuse in a glass jar for between 5-10 days, stirring daily. Strain through a cheesecloth, and then again through a coffee filter (if it’s still cloudy, you can strain it again after this)
I found the vodka a little overpowering still, so I added 1TBSP honey to the finished product to help sweeten it up a bit. Delicious otherwise!
Serve chilled on the rocks, or make a Quaker Shaker
- 2 ounces Oat and Honey Vodka
- 1 ounce half-and-half
- In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine vodka and half-and-half. Shake until well chilled, then strain over ice into an Old Fashioned glass.
(Or if you’re lactose intolerant like me, don’t do it! It’s a trap!)
a note: sorry about the weird volume of liquid – I was using up the last of a bottle of vodka, and that just happened to be how much I had. I adjusted the recipe accordingly, but for something that makes a little more sense, click the link I provided!
