Sorry the posts have been a little less frequent for the past week or two. I have been traveling like crazy. As my husband and I checked into a hotel on Saturday, I remarked that it was the 6th bed I had slept in for the week. Yes, the sixth. Four different hotels, one night in my own bed, and a short stay at my sister’s house. Needless to say, there has been lots of work, lots of fun, and just a lot going on!
I have just returned home after a weekend on San Juan Island in Washington State. We had some amazing weather and even got to see a group of Orca Whales. Very exciting.
Ok, now back to the booze…
2 Mangos – peeled, pits removed, and sliced
2 c. Vodka
2 TB Thick Simple Syrup (or to taste)
Infuse the mango in vodka for approximately 3-4 weeks. Strain and filter, then add the simple syrup. Age for another 2-3 weeks for the flavors to mellow.
When we first filtered this, the mango flavor was a bit bitter. But as with many fruit liqueurs, the flavors mellow with some time and rest. This is finally ready to drink. I’m happy to report that I’m enjoying a delicious cocktail with this liqueur as I write this.
