Tasting Notes

The Mind Eraser combines the smooth taste of vodka with the rich, deep flavors of coffee liqueur, all topped off with a fizzy splash of soda water. It’s a unique mix that hits you with the coolness of the soda first, then takes you on a quick journey through the warmth of the coffee liqueur, finishing with the crisp, clean taste of vodka. It’s like a flavor rollercoaster.

Equipment and Glassware

You’ll need a straw and a glass – that’s it! For this drink, we use a tall glass, often called a highball glass. It’s the perfect size to layer our ingredients beautifully and enjoy the drink’s full experience.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Coffee Liqueur
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • Splash of Club Soda

Instructions

  1. Pour a double shot of coffee liqueur over the ice. You can add as much ice as you prefer – just remember that this will water your drink down!
  2. Add your double shot of vodka. If you pour gently and slowly, the dark coffee liqueur should stay at the bottom of your glass creating a smart, layered look.
  3. Add just a splash of soda water to give it some fizz. If you’re using a soda water gun, hold your thumb down on the button for two seconds. This should be enough to mix the drink slightly but not to break up the layers.
  4. Serve with a short straw and enjoy! If made properly and sipped through a straw, you should be able to taste the separate layers of flavor as they meld together.

Pro Tips

  • Don’t stir! Let the layers settle to enjoy the full range of flavors.
  • Use crushed ice to keep your drink colder, longer.
  • Sip it through the straw from the bottom to taste the layers one by one.

When to Serve

The Mind Eraser is perfect for any occasion. It’s a hit at parties, a refreshing choice on a warm day, or even a fun twist for a nightcap. Anytime you want something exciting and different, this is your go-to.

Which Liquor Brands to Choose

For the best Mind Eraser, go for a smooth, high-quality vodka and a rich coffee liqueur. Brands like Absolut or Grey Goose for the vodka, and Kahlúa for the coffee liqueur make a great combination. But feel free to experiment with what you like best!
