Ryan's peanut infused bourbon was such a sucess that I thought I would try my own infusion. A friend of mine told me she had pineapple infused vodka while she was on vacation and said it was the most delicious cocktail she's ever had. So, with that in mind, I wanted to try my hand at it. Luckily for me pineapples were in season and was able to buy mine for really cheap at costco. I sliced my pineapples and placed them gently in this outdoor beverage jar using a brick like technique so the vodka can move around it. Then I filled it up with however much vodka I still had. Then the waiting.... I stored it in a cool dark part of my kitchen and waited for days. I took it out after 8 days since I started to notice the pineapple on the very top was turning a darker color. I would've otherwise left it for 10 days. Anyway, it turned out really yummy. I can barely taste any alcohol which is a bit scary and dangerous! Even your friends that don't like "alcoholic" beverages will like this. I promise! I put together a recipe of things I had on hand to make this cocktail, the pineapple smasher.
I just dropped frozen pineapple used in substitution as ice cubes. Worked like a charm!
Then filled my glass half way with the pineapple vodka, added some sparkling water then topped off with some orange juice.
Added a mint leaf as garnish and WAH LAH! You got yourself a delicious and refreshing cocktail. Enjoy!
