Homemade Vanilla vodka

porn star cocktail

I want to drink cocktails, lots of them. Unfortunately I can’t. Pregnancy and now breast feeding are keeping me on the straight and narrow – and my liver thanks me for it.

However, that doesn’t stop me from preparing for the day, and so I am infusing vodka with vanilla, because what I really fancy is a Porn Star (vanilla vodka, vanilla sugar, passionfruit juice and a shot of champagne on the side)

70cl Bottle of decent vodka (russian standard)
6 vanilla pods

Slice down the length of the vanilla pods and scrape out the seeds. Put the pods and seeds into the vodka. Leave in a cupboard for 5 weeks – c’est tout.

Drink generously with ice and mixers – preferably after 6 o’clock…but I won’t ┬átell.

    5 weeks, wow, I would love to try this. Do you know how it tastes like? Thanks for sharing!

    • It tastes fantastic with a little vanilla sugar in some passion fruit juice. I’ve made vanilla essence at the same time, which is far too strong to drink, but the vanilla vodka is lovely. thanks for the visit
