Is That Olive Oil In Your Cocktail?

Is That Olive Oil In Your Cocktail?

Oil and water may not mix, but alcohol and oil sure do! Olive oil, in particular, enhances the flavor and adds a surprising mouth feel to your drinks. There are several ways you can add oil to your cocktails. To infuse your alcohol, add your oil to the base spirit, let sit several hours before freezing. The oil will solidify and the hardened layer of fat can then be easily strained away, leaving a pleasing, palate-coating sensation to your sip. If you prefer not to infuse or fat wash your spirit, you can add oil to a dropper bottle and add a few drops to the surface of your cocktail. Dark infused oils add drama to your drink, although these work best with drinks without ice, served straight up in a martini glass. To intensify the experience, you can also put a few drops of oil into the shaker itself. This will impart a fuller, richer texture to the drink, although it wont be quite as visually striking as using the dropper.
