Orange Creamsicle Infused Vodka


Here is a way to use your Sous Vide Circulator to infuse the flavors of Orange and Vanilla into Vodka so you can make an Orange Creamsicle Cocktail.



Ingredients:


For the Orange Vanilla Infused Vodka:

2 oranges

1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise

1.5 cups vodka



Orange Vanilla Infused Vodka Instructions:


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.



Creamsicle Ingredients:

2 ounces Orange Vanilla Vodka or other infused spirit

1.5 oz orange juice

1.5 oz half and half

1 orange slice


Creamsicle Directions


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the orange vanilla vodka, orange juice, and half and half to the shaker. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds, until everything is combined well. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with an orange slice.
