What Ingredients are Needed for the Elvis Cocktail?
- Peanut Butter Whiskey
- Banana Infused Oloroso Sherry
- Chocolate and Coffee Bitters
So this Elvis cocktail was born! We started out with the sherry, and we knew we wanted a banana infusion in it. We thought the flavors of the sherry, it is a dry wine, with some tobacco and leather hints, we knew the banana would play well with those.
How Long to Infuse an Alcohol?
The length of infusion depends on how much you like banana: I think the infusion needs to be at least 3 days, but a week if you really want to bring out the banana notes. Just remember it does change the taste of the spirit, too.
How long does infused alcohol last?
Does infused liquor need to be refrigerated?
Does fruit go bad in alcohol?
No, they do lose their color and some flavor, but they will not go bad because the alcohol preserves it.
Notes on Infusions
- When we do infusions we tend to make them in smaller batches. Here we use 3/4 cup because I find the flavor is lost over time and we don’t need and entire bottle of banana flavored sherry!
- Another reason to keep this batch smaller is due to the breakdown of the banana slices. They get a bit gooey if you let it sit for too long, as I said, 3 days is optimal.
So, we knew that banana and peanut butter would play well. But, we thought even with the dry sherry, that the drink was too sweet. And then Jay thought about adding a bit of peated scotch. So, we did! We didn’t want too much smoke, so we then added some coffee chocolate bitters.
This really helped out alleviating the smoke and sweet flavors for sure. If you don’t have the combo coffee chocolate bitters, you can use some of each of the bottles. If you do that, we encourage more coffee than chocolate.
Hope you enjoy this boozy whiskey tipple, and honor Elvis at the same time!
Cheers to this great sip!
