Oat and Honey Vodka

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

  • Ice
  • 2 ounces Oat and Honey Vodka
  • 1 ounce half-and-half
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. 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!

Enjoy 🙂
