On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me... a Pineapple Gin Crush.
What’s Christmas in Australia without the sweltering heat? Yes Christmas in Australia exudes summer. It’s the beaches, the sun screen and the cul de sac cricket. So you’ve gotta cooldown somehow and we’ve got the best holiday cooldown you could ask for. It is lush with fresh fruit, crushed ice and delicious gin. It’s up anyone's alley, like that foul ball from cul de sac cricket. Ok i don't know how cricket works. But I do know how cocktails work...
Go to the fresh fruit section of your local store: Pineapple: get a nice plump one, the sweeter the better. Green Apples: you’ll need a handful, green apples are great because they are full of juice that’s crisp and sweet. Mint: we want your breath to taste fresh, and for the drink to taste nice too. Ice: if you're making loads for friends pick up some ice, if it’s just you start freezing some fresh water from the tap. Gin: Clementines American Gin is the one for us when it comes to this combination. Her hints of lavender and stronger flavour come through with this sweet drink.
This recipe is an easy one, you’ll need a blender but it's so easy. You wouldn’t believe how easy it is. Don’t believe me? Well stop reading this bit and go and read the recipe jeez.
Spiced Gin Ingredients:
- 50ml Clementines American Gin
- ¼ of a whole pineapple
- 1 apple
- Mint to your liking
Spiced Gin Method:
- Chop your pineapple up, then chop your apple up. That’s all the chopping and effort done.
- We’ve learned after blending so much ice all the time it's best to pre blend just to get them a bit chipped so your blender doesn't get stuck. (we don't want to blend the ice fully just get the ball rolling).
- Add to the ice the chopped fruit, your mint and 50ml of Clementines American Gin.
- Blend to slushie form.
- Drink it like there is no tomorrow. Put it in a glass first though, or drink from the blender. Unplug the blender first though.
