Pineapple Infused Martini

pineappleMartini64pineappleMartini74jarTo wrap up my summer infusion tour, I made a classic pineapple infused vodka.  I just like to call it a classic because it really is the best flavor to start your infusion journey and one you will return to often.  Chop up a fresh whole pineapple put in a jar with a liter of vodka and place in your refrigerator. Give it a shake every couple of days, I like to let it infuse for at least two weeks. Remove the pineapple and either squeeze it through a potato ricer or a piece of cheese cloth. Squeeze all the pineapple juice back into the infused vodka, keeps all that pineapple juice. Then if you like shake the vodka with some ice and strain into martini glass-Enjoy.   It’s that simple and delicious. There is a bar in Minneapolis that always has a large vat infusing on the bar, but they have a rule you are only allowed to have two pineapple martini’s.  Probably from experience they limit the pineapple goodness, and a cautionary tale for yourself.

Cheers
