I have been on it with these infusions lately! Pineapples are such a nice fruit in the summer and rum is just nice anytime. Put them together, add an umbrella…Hey Summer!!
2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
2 cups golden rum
3 tablespoons sugar
Club soda, for topping
Lime wedges, for serving
Combine the pineapple, rum and sugar in a bowl or pitcher. Refrigerate at least 8 hours and up to 3 days. Strain the rum, reserving the pineapple. Serve over ice with a splash of soda, a few pieces of the pineapple and several lime wedges.
Also tasty with Tonic or Coke or Juice or Sprite or….
The beginnings of some amazing vodka!! I cut up a pint of strawberries and put a few in the bottom of a mason jar. I muddled those, then added the rest of the strawberries. Fill the jar to the top with vodka and shake a little. Put in the refrigerator for a week. Try to shake the jar everyday. Come back in a week and see how this turns out!
Get ready for the summer, start infusing your tequila now!
Thanks for all of the infusion help!! I’m gonna go with bourbon. Now to find some recipes…
It is in the high 60’s today!! Yesterday was National Margarita Day!! It’s almost the weekend!! So many things to be excited about right now. With that said, I wanted a crisp drink and something kinda celebratory and I wanted to use one of my vodka infusions. I came up with Crisp & Cran which uses Cranberry-Lime infusd vodka. And to celebrate the great weather, a bit of sparkling wine.
Crisp & Cran
1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
1 oz of Cranberry Juice
shot of Sparkling Wine
Mix the first three ingredients in a shaker. Pour into glass. Top with the sparkling wine. Garnish with a lime wedge. Enjoy!
This drink used up the last of my Cran-Lime vodka, wonder what should I infuse next?
Apple Cinnamon Vodka
My first shot with an infusion
I sliced up 3 Braeburn apples (you definitely want slices, not cubes)
Then placed them in a jar
I poured 12 fl oz of vodka in the jar
Added 1 1/2 cinnamon sticks to the jar and sealed it
Fast forward one week….VOILA! My vodka infusion is complete!
It totally smells like fall. Wonder what drink I’ll make with this…
