If you hadn't assumed it already, Ghana has a delicious assortment of tropical fruits. One of my favorites is pineapple. Grown locally, and almost always in season, they're small, sweet and succulent.
Our favorite brand, Soft Tail Vodka, hails from right outside Seattle. Made out of Washington state apples, the vodka has a smooth vanilla flavor and is the perfect base for fruit cocktails (yes, we considered this vodka a "necessity" and brought it over with us!).
So, first infusion with local tropical fruit commences. Here we go:
Step 1: Cut up ripe pineapple (steal slice of pineapple first to ensure ripeness and a happy mouth).
Step 2: Place slices in sealable container.
Step 3: Pour vodka over pineapple slices.
Step 5: Place in dark location for 10 days.
We'll post the results in 10 days. On August 3rd, there will be a pineapple-infused vodka taste test at our house. All are invited.
