Boozed + Infused

Infusing liqueurs at home with inspiring and seasonal ingredients

Maple Mushroom Martini


Many months ago, we posted a Mushroom Vodka infusion. For the most part, that infusion has been sitting in a mason jar doing nothing… until now.

A handful of readers gave some great cocktail suggestions, and a simple drink with orange bitters sounded great.

Maple Mushroom Martini

2 oz. Mushroom Infused Vodka

3/4 tsp maple syrup

5-6 dashes Orange Bitters

1/2 TB fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 dash aromatic bitters

Mix all of the above ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.

This drink has the flavor of the mushroom, with a touch of sweetness from the maple, balanced with the tart lemon juice and bitters. In all, I think this was pretty delicious! I wouldn’t mind having another…

  2. I am dubious… but you make it sound pretty good. I still kind of want to puke thinking about it though.

  3. Hmmmmmmmmm………..well, I think I may like it because it doesn’t sound as sweet as some cocktails. After my Peppers and Tequila finish fusing, I may have to try this one.

  4. Wow, I just came to have a look after you dropped by my blog and I love your concept! I adore infusing, but have never got further than sloe gin, raspberry whisky and berry vodka. Definitely going to have a go at some of your more adventurous ideas. Thanks so much for totally opening my eyes!

  5. This may be the wildest sounding cocktail I have ever heard of, yet a possibility I would not turn down of offered. When I go over the ingredients, I am intrigued. At first I thought the only thing to make with this was a Bloody Mary (and a thumpin’ good one at that). However, this invites a sweet tooth to the party. Nicely done!

    • Hi Jack, yes, this mushroom cocktail was a bit of a surprise for me too. I really just infused the mushrooms out of curiosity and didn’t do anything with them for a long time. I really did like this cocktail. It may not be one I would drink regularly, but I would have it again!

  6. This was awesome. 🙂 I mixed mushroom infused vodka, maple syrup, bitters, fresh squeezed lemon and orange, shook it with ice then put a skewered cinnamon cap mushroom (it was fresh, it was one of the ones fusing with the vodka) in a shot glass with it, put some grenadine over it to give it a nice colour.. It was amazing! Everyone loved it. :3 Will be using in the future!

  8. This was fantastic! We made this as part of the first course of our Christmas dinner “mushrooms 4 ways”. The other “ways” were of the more traditional food variety. What a fun addition to a dinner party. I wouldn’t say everyone in the family loved it, but about half of us thought it was delicious. The other half were still good sports and drank them up.

    I would love to serve this at another party without telling people what it was. I don’t know if people would be able to guess, the flavour is so unique!

    (Btw, we used dried porcini mushrooms and infused for 3 days)
