In celebration of summer, I plan to:
-slice a very ripe pineapple into rounds
-open up a jar of canned lychee
-put the above in a large glass jar
-pour in a bottle of vodka
-let it sit in the sun for a week or two to in.fuse
-chill in the fridge
-drink sweet, fruity cocktails til I'm silly with glee
Can anyone give me advice on this first time venture? Is there a step I'm missing or something wrong with my thought process here? Will the fruit go bad in the sun or will the vodka pickle it?
Most importantly, what's the best vodka for this project? I really don't want to go out and buy something expensive. If I could get away with something around $10, that would be perfect. I'd be willing to pay up to $15. Ideas?
Would Smirnoff be okay because I'm using so much fruit and sugar (from the canned lychee)?
