this one’s still in the experimental stages, so i only made about a pint, but i think it’s got some real potential. i found a granny smith apple kicking around behind the bar, and after trolling through a list of the usual suspects (vodka, whiskey, brandy), i decided to go a little off the beaten path and infuse it into some tequila. i think the tart sweetness of the apple will go nicely with the woody, peppery edge that tequila has, and though i don’t yet know what i’m going to do with it, i decided to give it a whirl.
1 pint (more or less) white tequila
1 granny smith apple
1 cinnamon stick
2 pinches red chili flakes
2 slices orange zest
combine all in a jar and seal. not sure how long it’ll take, but will update as necessary or relevant.
