Olive Oil-Infused Vodka
The kitchen staple is used for sautéing, frying, drizzling, dipping, and baking, so why not add a bit of that sultry flavor to a cocktail? It’ll add a ton of smooth flavor and cut through the “bite” of the alcohol. Many recipes for olive oil cocktails ask you to incorporate a healthy dose of it into the drink through emulsification, making for viscous results. With this olive oil-infused vodka, there’s no need. You’re whisking olive oil and vodka over very low heat, freezing the mixture until the oil solidifies, and skimming it off. The olive oil subtly lingers in flavor but not consistency. Bottoms up.
