Organic Oatmeal Cocktail
We’re here at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers show in Las Vegas, so happy hour here begins when you wake up. Not as fun as it sounds, but, this organic oatmeal cocktail we heard about sounded delicious. Instead of Mimosas, try this at your next brunch soiree.
Fresh, healthy cocktail
If you’re an oatmeal lover like myself, you’re going to love this Oatmeal Cocktail. You can make this cocktail using fresh organic oats and a little bit of organic vanilla vodka.
What you get is more of a shake/smoothie than a martini drink, but it’s delicious nonetheless.
What you’ll need for this is about 1 cup of freshly made oats. Simply choose your favorite brand of organic oats.
I personally prefer cooking the old-fashioned way than opting for the instant products, but it’s totally up to you. Combine equal parts oats and water or milk, and stir over medium-heat for 3-5 minutes.
Now, you can make this cocktail in two ways – a smoothie or a shake. If you opt for the latter, then do the following.
Add the cooked mixture in a blender, and blend for a 5-10 seconds.
You don’t want your drink to be too runny or “liquidy.” You’ll still want a little bit of texture, so blend until smooth. You’ll use the following ingredients, however, follow different steps than the ones listed below.
Pour the mixed ingredients into a metal shaker with a little bit of ice. Add your vodka and vanilla extract. Shake vigorously.
You can strain the contents into a martini glass, or pour it into a pint glass. Enjoy.
The following instructions are for an oatmeal smoothie cocktail.
