Coffee Vodka Cordial


Coffee Vodka Cordial

Makes about 1 ½ quarts (1.5 liters)


  • 1 bottle (750 ml) vodka (or grain spirits)
  • 6 tablespoons (90 ml) whole dark roast coffee beans
  • 3 cups (710 ml) simple syrup



  1. Fill and preheat the water oven to 135F/57C.
  2. Put the vodka and coffee beans into a zip-closure cooking pouch. Use the displacement method (Archimedes’ Principle) to remove as much air as possible and zip the pouch closed.
  3. Submerge the pouch in the water oven and cook for 30 minutes. The contents must be completely submerged to ensure even cooking.
  4. Remove the pouch and submerge it in an ice water bath (half ice, half water) for 20 to 30 minutes to quick-chill the contents.
  5. Strain the infused vodka through a fine mesh sieve into a large bowl and discard the beans.
  6. Add the simple syrup to the vodka and mix well.
  7. Pour the cordial into two or more clean bottles, label, date, and store, tightly capped, in the refrigerator for up to six weeks.
