A key to a delicious cocktail is the quality and freshness of your ingredients. One way we like to customize our ingredients is with infused spirits.
Today I'm sharing our pineapple infused vodka. It is simple to infuse your vodka. All you need is a fruit at peak ripeness, a glass container with a cover and vodka.
Let's see how we do it.
First prepare your fruit.
For pineapple, you will need to cut the top off the fruit.
Place about half of the pineapple chunks in the bottom of a glass container.
Finally, pour enough vodka into the glass container (with a cover) to completely cover the fruit. Cover the container and set into a cool dark place for 24 hours. Monitor the vodka for flavor. You can remove the fruit once you have reached the flavor level you want.
Refrigerate your container of pineapple infused vodka and use it as you would any vodka. In the future I'll share some of the cocktails we like to make. In the meantime, try infusing vodka or rum with a favorite flavor. If you decide to infuse with a citrus fruit, you'll want to use slices of zest rather than the fruit. You'll find there is plenty of flavor in the natural oils in the zest.
