I went to a really kitschy tiki bar called 3 Dots and a Dash. Really interesting mixology going on. Mescal, Bourbon, lots of Rum, a little pomegranate and some pineapple. The drinks are not cloyingly sweet. If you are around downtown Chicago you’ll need to check it out. It’s entrance is in an alley. There is a jacketed door guy who needed to see my i.d. Then it is a walk down to a neon lit Tiki themed basement. It’s a much hipper place than my normal suburban scene.
Pineapple Vodka reminds me of the restaurant The Capitol Grill. It’s a chain and is found in the suburbs. No doorman but as you can see from the picture the bartenders wear bowties. (Bowties are cool.) This restaurant usually has a large glass jar of Pineapple Vodka infusing on their back bar.
Pretty yummy. Pretty Potent.
My Recipe is extremely simple.
1 Pre cut and cored pineapple from the grocery store.
1 cup of vodka.
Open plastic container pineapple comes in. Pour in Vodka. The herb in the middle is a piece of a stevia plant. The pineapple is sweet enough but I am always experimenting. I would give this 3 days in the fridge or more. The longer you leave it to marinate, the stronger the pineapple taste is.
Two recipes on Friday for this one..
