1 750ml bottle vodka
1-inch slice of fresh turmeric
1/4 fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
2 passionfruits, juice and seeds
Tiger’s Eye crystals (optional)
calamansi juice or lemonade to serve
A vodka infusion to bring out the tropics, with the optional ingredient of a dose of courage. This recipe needs to be made 7-days in advance.
- Add the vodka, turmeric, fresh pineapple and passion fruit into a jar. I like to add crystals to my infusions, so I chose Tiger’s Eye which is yellowish-brown in colour for courage.
- Let this sit in an air tight jar for at least seven days. Make sure you check your infusion regularly and open the jar to release any air.
- If fruits turn colour, or if the solution starts looking murky, remove the fruits immediately and filter it using a cloth coffee filter .
- Serve really cold with calamansi juice and some sparkling lemonade .
