Coffee Infusing

I've tried infusing Vodka with many different things. From fruits and vegetables, to herbs and coffee. In fact, my favorite so far (and one of the easiest to do) was the Coffee infused Vodka.

I use a mid level grade Vodka called "Krystov Crystal Vodka". It's a triple distilled grain Vodka bottled in Mira Loma, CA. I have always thought that there is not a huge difference between brands of Vodka. I mean, it is a "flavorless" drink right? Well, ABC's 20/20 agrees.

For the coffee infused Vodka, I place 4 teaspoons of ground dark coffee in a 24oz. bottle. Then add 1/2 oz. of simple syrup then fill with Vodka and shake! About 24-36 hours later, strain this through a coffee filter and your done. It will look like a cup of dark coffee, but will be a little bitter to taste, and very caffeinated.

Here is a quick drink recipe using the Coffee Infused Vodka:


1 1/2 oz. Coffee Infused Vodka
1 oz. Kahlua
1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
Shake & Strain into a Cordial Glass
Top With Whipped Cream


Or try it on the rocks in an Old Fashion Glass (The melting ice will make it a little less sweet).

Salud y Amor y Tiempo Para Disfrutarlo!
