Small wedges of fresh pineapple (optional) for garnish
Fill a large cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the pineapple vodka, lime juice and Simple Syrup. Securely fasten the lid and shake until the outside of the cocktail shaker is so cold you can shake no more, about 20 seconds. Taste and add additional lime juice or Simply Syrup, if necessary. Strain the mixture into a martini glass (or pour into a rocks glass and add a couple of ice cubes to keep it cold), if you’d like, garnish the glass with a wedge of pineapple. Just slice each pineapple wedge about two-thirds up the center and slide it onto the rim of the glass.
3 cups cubed (3/4 inch) fresh pineapple (from a 3-pound or larger pineapple)
2 cups vodka
1. Transfer the cubed pineapple to a 1-quart mason jar (or any 1-quart glass jar with a secure lid) and pour the vodka over the pineapple. Screw on the lid tightly and place the jar in a cool, dark place (like inside a cupboard). Let it rest for 14 days, shaking occasionally.
2. When the vodka is ready, place a fine-mesh strainer over a large liquid measuring cup (at least 2-cup capacity) or medium bowl. Pour the pineapple vodka through the strainer. Discard the pineapple, all of its flavor has transferred to the vodka, so it’s useless to us now.
3. Leftover pineapple – infused vodka will keep well in the refrigerator for a month or so. Store it in an appropriately sized mason jar with the lid securely fastened.
