Decided to keep things really simple for today’s “cocktail” and, honestly, it really can’t get any simpler than this. I’ll be sharing the ingredients for the vodkas as well after the jump so do check that out too!
- 70ml Indian mango infused vodka
- 20ml Chili “liqueur”
- Orange twist
One key thing that I’ve learned when adding orange/lemon twists to drinks is the importance of using the freshest fruits that you can get your hands on for the simple reason that fresh fruit zest will give you more essential oils. I’ve had trouble with some of the oranges that I’ve used for previous drinks in that they don’t really give out that much oil.
Indian Mango Infused Vodka
- 2 Indian mangoes
- 500ml Vodka
- Leave for a week in a jar
- 4 Siling labuyo (Bird’s eye chilis)
- 1 cup White sugar
- 300ml Water
- 250ml Vodka
Mix all the ingredients, except the vodka, in a saucepan. Simmer for 30 minutes and cool the syrup. Take 250ml of the syrup and mix in 250ml vodka.
