Pineapple-Basil Vodka: The New Star Of Summertime Drinks!

summer drinks pineapple

It’s time to talk about summer drinks, considering just how warm it’s now becoming. I walked around my local market this morning and it was already over 20c. Anyway, I’ve come across a drink that I think will become very popular this summer season. It’s name reflects the ingredients used – Pineapple-Basil Vodka. Well ok it’s not quite a name and it sure needs something catchy, if you can think of one then please leave a comment. I’ll pass it on to it’s creator…

This adult only drink is very simple to make and combines some interesting flavours. It comes from the 1 Big Bite food and photography blog, the recipe was crafted by Eva Felis.

I love simple recipes and this one is not exception. The pineapple provides all the sweetness you need, no added sugar required. These days, basil become quite a versatile herb, used in sauces, ice cream and many other things. It now finds it’s way into alcoholic drinks, well – why not?

This is one of those summer drinks that has a combination of flavours you wouldn’t normally think to use. However, it’s certainly an interesting mix and deserves testing out.

I can just imagine friends sitting together in the garden, enjoying late afternoon sunshine with a chilled glass of this lovely concoction. Drop some ice in a glass, pour the drink over the top and relax…
