COOKBOOK PREVIEW (5 recipes)
Cranberry, Orange, Raspberry Vodka Drink (aka Cape Cod) I had a great drink last night... it's a little different than a traditional Cape Cod because is has flavored Vodka. It doesn't look that great, but it is!I'm drinking this now. I figure, I had to upload a photo anyway. HAHAHAH :) Cheers to us!
Root Beer Vodka Float Just In Time For Summer!
There are few times in life when you try something truly unique. It's summer in LA and you can tell by the triple digit temperatures. We are boiling in the West!
Last night I wanted ice cream, but was looking for something different. Then it hit me.. what about infusing it with some flavored vodka? So I invited my good friend Latifah (also a BakeSpace member and a friend I have known since high school) over for a little taste test.
I was given three bottles of vodka from the good folks at Three Olives Vodka. The flavors they sent were root beer, tomato and espresso. My first try was the root beer - I thought it would be the safest to try. I haven't really tried many flavored vodkas except what you find at the local market.. you know the flavors.. orange, lemon and raspberry.
We made three batches last night (three variations of the same recipe until we got it right... all in the name of research). You don't expect it, but the vodka can give you a bit of a buzz... photo will be uploaded soon.
The vodka itself really smells like root beer which surprised me. I thought it would have more of an alcoholic smell. The color is clear so it will not change a drink's look. This recipe is perfect for an afternoon in the sun or on the patio as it really cools you down. The root beer flavor itself was quite nice and light in taste. I am not a huge vodka fan although I do enjoy a raspberry vodka in my chocolate martini and also in a glass of orange juice.
All in all, I really enjoyed the flavor and quality of the final product. It was definitely fun changing the recipe up with each try. I'm not really sure what to add to the tomato and espresso flavors, but it will be fun to play around. More on those flavors later..
If you have an ideas for the tomato or espresso vodkas let me know. I'm curious to find some new recipes to try.
Milk and Kahlua Midnight Cocktail Ok.. I can't tell you how delightful it is to have a warm cup of milk before bed.. you probably already know that. But have you added a splash of Kahlua? It's delish!
