Keeping it simple: Indian mango-infused vodka on the rocks

Infused vodka. Ice. Simple.
Infused vodka. Ice. Simple.

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.

Top with some orange zest for a bright, citrusy finish.
