Infusion question

Dave and Stuff | | Jan 28, 2008 09:02 AM

Just started to do an infusion for SuperBowl.

I have put 4 bottles of 4 Copas Silver Tequila over Pineapple, Cantaloupe and Honeydew. It looks's layered, and is starting to smell and taste great.

The problem is that all these fruits are floating. The layers still look good, but there is some fruit floating above the liquor...not much (just peeking), but enough that I am worried about spoilage, even after just a few days.

Should I not worry? Should I worry? What can I do to push the fruit back down (I thought about weighing it down with a plate)? I would prefer to not ruin the asthetics (layers=purty!), but if I have to, I will. But also I am hesitant to push the fruit down in the infusion after it's hit a little air.

Any ideas? Or is this a non-issue?
