You may recall my wonderful meal at Restaurant Nola in New Orleans. One of the many highlights was their Cosmo – made with their own Pineapple infused vodka. Since that fateful night in September, I have been wanting to make my own infused vodka. I decided it would be a perfect gift for family and friends this year – I wasn’t able to find any cool bottles so had to stick with the classic, but it’s what inside that counts, right?

The recipe is simple, quick and I promise that whoever is on the receiving end of this gift will be in cocktail heaven!

Put pineapple chunks (or strawberry, grapefruit, jalapeño, etc) into a jar and fill with vodka of choice. Refrigerate for at least 5 days and then drink on the rocks, in a cocktail or neat.

Happy New Year!

    How long will the pineapple infused vodka last once prepared?

      It will last up to two months but you are supposed to take the fruit out after a week. I didn’t make huge jars so I don’t think it will be a problem to finish them off!
