Pineapples are known for their intense fragrance and sharp acidic taste. Ice Shot Pineapple Vodka has a beautiful and irresistible flavor of typical pineapple complemented a hint of orange in the background. The citrus taste is strong and long lasting and the aromas are reminiscent of a freshly cut pineapple.
What you need (6 cocktails):
- 1 small pineapple
- 4 sprigs mint
- 3 limes, quartered
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cups vodka
- 2 limes, juiced
- About 3 cups seltzer
- Mint and pineapple for garnish
Core and trim the pineapple. Cut 3 thin slices, halve them so they look like half moons, and reserve for garnish. Cut the rest into chunks. Blend for 2-3 minutes until frothy and smooth. Strain through a sieve to remove the woody strands. 1 small pineapple should yield about 2 cups of juice.
In a wide-mouthed pitcher or a mixing bowl, muddle the mint and quartered limes with sugar. I don’t have an official muddler or anything, but a sturdy wooden spoon or potato masher should do. The goal is to break up both the limes and mint and dissolve the sugar. The mint should be fragrant by the time muddling is done; the limes should have given off lots of juice; the sugar should be basically dissolved. Add 2 cups of fresh pineapple juice, juice of 2 more limes, and the Ice Shot Pineapple Vodka. Stir.
Fill low ball glasses with ice. Pour about 1/2 cup pineapple-lime-vodka mixture into each glass (should be about half full). Top with seltzer. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a few extra mint leaves. Taste for balance of flavors, adding more Ice Shot Pineapple Vodka, if you’d like, taste it.
What you need:
- 2 oz X-Rated Fusion Liqueur
- 2 oz Ice Shot Pineapple Vodka
- 3 slices of fresh pineapple
- 1 pineapple slice for garnish
Pink Pineapple is simple but tasty and blended, which makes a great summer drink. The beauty of this cocktail is how the Ice Shot Vodka blends with pineapple. It is a delicious combination that you have to try to believe.
What you will need:
- 1 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
- 1 oz Ice Shot Vodka
- 1 oz orange liqueur
- 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
- Brown Sugar, for the rim (optional)
- Fresh wedges of pineapple
- Maraschino cherry
Chill a martini glass in the freezer. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the pineapple juice, vodka, orange liqueur, and lime juice. Cover and shake vigorously, until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, by the time the shaker mists up the drink is ready.)
Scatter some brown sugar onto a small plate, wet the rim of the glass and dip into sugar. Strain the drink into the chilled glass. Skewer the pineapple and cherry and drop into the cocktail.
