Ok folks, I am going to keep this short and sweet. Today has really kicked my butt! For months I have been playing around with infused alcohols, adding fruits, herbs and spices to make various concoctions. The flavor combos are infinite…
Triple Berry Infused Rum
For this recipe add your berries to an airtight container more than big enough to hold a fifth of rum, about 36-40 ounces should be good. Pour the booze over the fruit and seal. Store in a cool dark place for at least a few days or up to two weeks. You will see the color leach out of the fruit over time, that is supposed to happen.
Once it has set the desired length of time, strain out the fruit and store the rum in an airtight container. Reserve the fruit, storing it in the refrigerator, for use in my Triple Berry Boozy Smoothie. It packs a real punch!
For a refreshing cocktail prepare 1 cup simple syrup by adding 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a small sauce pan. Bring to a low boil, stirring until sugar the is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool completely. Mix 2 ounces Triple Berry Infused Rum with 1.5 ounces simple syrup and a squeeze of lemon in an ice filled glass. Top with sparkling water.
