Vodka Butter

The Lempert Report
April 21, 2023

The latest recipe trend on TikTok is going viral. What's this recipe? 

Sally: Get ready Phil. It's a vodka butter. Have you ever thought about putting liquor in your butter? Carolina Gelen has, and she is taking butter and putting it in a food processor and adding a little vodka. And in her video, the way that she pairs it is she takes this butter and she makes some crusty bread and she gets some anchovies. She spreads the butter on, puts the anchovies on and serves it as an hors d'oeuvre. And it looks really lovely. I have not tried the vodka butter, but she has got over half a million followers on her TikTok account, and she has over 15 million likes. So people are really, really enjoying what Carolina Gelen has to say.

Phil: I guess. I don't know. It's not something, and probably when you look at butter as a carrier, you could do a whole bunch of different, liquors and liqueurs with it. I guess how you would use it, I don't know. But also there have been butter boards as a trend that we've seen in certain restaurants where they'll bring you 3, 4, 5 different kinds of flavored butters that you could use on breads. And maybe this is a new trend that'll hit some of those restaurants as well. But I think I'll pass. I'm not a big butter person to begin with, so what can I tell you?
