Fruit Infused Alcohol

Fruit Infused Alcohol

Step 1: Choose your liquor Vodka is an obvious choice, but why not use white rum or tequila, brandy or grappa? Don't go for the really cheap stuff, but don't splurge either. A middle-of-the-road, neutrally flavored liquor will produce the best infused spirits. Step 2: Choose your produce Use what's in season. Go to your local farmers' market or, better yet, pick berries from your own berry patch, and bring home the most beautiful produce you can find. The super-ripe peach that dribbles juice down your chin is a perfect candidate. Also try raspberries, strawberries, pears, figs, lemons, cherries, blueberries, even beets and chiles, as long as they are ripe, ripe, ripe. Some of my favorite fruit-and-spirit combos (in addition to the ones pictured above) are: Apricots + Eau de Vie Figs + Bourbon Jalapenos + Tequila Pineapple + Rum Beets + Vodka
