This rich, warming homemade toffee vodka recipe is delicious in shots or cocktails,. Makes a lovely seasonal gift.
- 130 g toffees
- 500 ml vodka
Put all the toffees in a wide-necked jar. Then add the vodka.
130 g toffees, 500 ml vodka
Seal and swirl the jar to mix. Leave for 5 days to a week, giving your toffee vodka time to infuse. Swirl regularly to help the toffees to melt. You can stand the jar next to a radiator to speed up the process if you need to.
When the toffees have dissolved, you will have an opaque vodka drink that looks a bit like Irish cream. You can bottle it like this or decide to filter it. I find that filtering produces a smoother drink.
To filter, set either a coffee filter or a sieve lined with kitchen paper over a jug and pour the vodka in. This can be a slow process, and will take several hours. At the end, you will be left with a delicious soft toffee cream in the filter. Don't throw this away, as it is delicious on desserts or added to hot chocolate. Keep it in the fridge for up to a week.
Bottle your vodka and store it in a cool, dark cupboard.
Unfiltered, this recipe will yield around 575 ml of Toffee Vodka.
Filtered, it makes about 450 ml.
