Homemade Orange Triple Sec Liqueur Recipe

orange liqueur recipe vodka

I’ve obsessed with Lemon Drop Martinis ever since I ordered one from Top of the Mark on a lovely afternoon this June.  Almost all of of the recipes require Triple Sec or Grand Marnier. Rather than making a BevMo run, I made my own. I combined vodka infusion techniques with simple syrup that took a little bit of time and patients, but overall was not very difficult to make.

Starbucks Vanilla DoubleShot Copycat Recipe

Recently I’ve become, oh lets just say a little addicted to Starbucks DoubleShot vanilla flavor. It started innocently enough, on a weekend trip up to Point Reyes, my friend and I stopped at 7 Eleven for some refreshments and I was hooked instantly. It’s such a silky mix of cream, coffee, and flavoring. Soon, I was buying them at corner stores at 10pm or whenever I needed a pick me up. For $2.69 a pop, it was an expensive habit.

I knew I couldn’t afford to keep buying DoubleShots at such an alarming rate, so I’ve come up with a copycat recipe for the vanilla flavor that I so enjoy.
