Orange Vanilla Infused Vodka Recipe

Orange and vanilla are natural pairings that this infusion takes full advantage of. The resulting vodka is citrusy with a deep vanilla backbone. It is awesome in a martini but my favorite use of it is in a Creamsicle, a rich and creamy dessert cocktail found elsewhere in the book.

Orange Vanilla Infused Vodka Instructions

For the Orange Vanilla Infused Vodka

Preheat a water bath to 140°F (60°C).

Lightly scrub the outside of the oranges then remove the zest with a vegetable peeler or zester. Make sure little to no pith came off as well, using a paring knife to remove any. The orange pieces can be reserved for garnishing the drink.

Combine all the ingredients in a sous vide bag or Mason jar then seal and place in the water bath. Heat the infusion for 1 to 3 hours.

Prepare an ice bath with 1/2 ice and 1/2 water. Remove the bag or Mason jar from the water bath and place in the ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the vodka and store in a sealed container.
