My first attempt at infused alcohol and the results were amazing! Thanks onemartiniatatime for the inspiration!
Some say to use cheap spirits but cheap to me means poor quality. There are plenty of less expensive spirits which work well for infusing but feel free to break out the good stuff to! If it’s tequila just make sure it’s 100% pure agave.
For this cocktail recipe I used El Ultimo Agave which was $13.99 for a 750ml bottle.
Add your fruits, peppers, etc to a jar and pour in the spirit. Let sit for at least 48 hours before using. Different alcohols and fruits will infuse at varying rates.
After 48 hours the tequila was mild and sweet while the pineapple tasted like pure alcohol! A nice treat at the bottom of the glass but beware.
Add lime zest using this microplane zester to the salt and sugar mix for an interesting twist.
