Pineapple Infused Vodka

Hi lovelies! So sorry to keep you waiting for Mangia Monday today but we are just returning from a crazy fun weekend with friends at Lake Winnipesaukee, where the lack of wi-fi access was a blessing in disguise. This year marked a decade of our three families spending a summer weekend at the lake together, and every year there are copious amounts of swimming, boating, sunset cruising, tubing, canoeing, eating and laughing!

Here is a little something I made for the adults to celebrate ten years of fun with friends that are like family.

A pineapple infused vodka martini is commonly known as a Stoli Doli, made popular by The Capital Grille restaurants who use the premium Stolichnaya brand vodka and Dole pineapples. I used Absolut Vodka for this batch and it was just as delicious as the ones I’ve enjoyed in the restaurant.

Ingredients:
1 liter vodka
1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple chunks or rings (I used one whole pineapple)

Directions:
Place pineapple in an airtight container and add vodka. Refrigerate for 3 days to 1 week. {I gave the container a robust shake every now and then just for good measure.}  Taste periodically and remove pineapple when you’re happy with the taste. The longer the pineapple marinates, the sweeter and more flavorful the vodka will be. After removing the pineapple, the infused vodka can be refrigerated for up to 2 months.

To serve:
A traditional Stoli Doli is served as a martini, shaken vigorously with ice until well chilled (about 30 seconds) and then strained and garnished with a pineapple chunk. The pineapple infused vodka can also be served on the rocks or mixed with other juices into a cocktail. The pineapple that has been marinating in the vodka is delicious pureed in a blender and served over ice, with a little umbrella on the side of course!

Thanks for your sweet comment, Lisa! No, I can't see one single reason why this wouldn't work for dinner, sounds like a good plan to me! :)
