For those who aren’t aware I do enjoy experimenting and including tea in every aspect of my life whenever possible. One of my favorite things to do is infusing teas with a few of my other favorite beverages.
My experiment today involves “Milk Oolong” a personal favorite and vodka. Not a difficult experiment at all so it had to be done. Many of you already saw my post about this last year on Google+. It was there I realized I never posted it here. For that I apologize.
Pungent Milk Oolong – Be sure it is fresh and the aroma is strong. I do not prefer drinking milk oolong’s that have been bathed in real milk. I enjoy a natural unaltered variety which is what I used here.
Premium Vodka – Go for a clean unflavored finish. The vodka that contains its own unique flavor profile, if strong can take away from the finished product and alter the final infused flavor. I used Kettle One but just like tea Vodka is a personal choice and what may work for me, may not work for you.
1 – 12oz Glass Jar
Extra Glass Large Enough To Hold Jar Contents
Glass For Drinking
Fill your glass jar half way up with “Milk Oolong”
Completely fill up your glass jar with your vodka of choice
Screw top back on the jar and close tightly
Place jar in refrigerator for minimum 24hrs
Strain now infused vodka into another container and dispose of “Milk Oolong”
Pour yourself a small sample of your newly infused vodka and enjoy.
Put remaining vodka back into the glass jar, screw on top tightly, and place back into the refrigerator. Do not wait to long to finish it. The flavor may become altered and no longer enjoyable.
Hope you enjoyed this little experiment. Please share with my your results when you make your first batch.
When I am not running after the kids, managing the household, and homeschooling my oldest I enjoy blogging about my passions and how it applies to my life.
