Sexy Pineapple, Mint and Apple Vodka Cocktail Recipe

Hello!

As part of my dinner party I organised for some friends, I decided to serve cocktails!!  I wanted my evening to have a sexy theme, so I made a sensuous cocktail.  


I have come to realise that there are some key elements to making a cocktail sensuous:- 
1) It must look, bright, attractive and sleek.
2) It should also have a fantastic little decorative piece of something related to the ingredients sitting in it.
3) You need an element of the cocktail to evoke the sensory cells - for example some tropical fruit and a herb of some sort.
4) And of course make sure you have a cute, curvy, sexy glass to serve it in, like this one:-


If you smell mint leaves as soon as you've picked them, you will percieve that they do not release much minty fragrance.  However, if you hold them in a flat hand, and clap your hands once, so as to violently 'bang' on the mint leaves, it causes their fragrance to explode, and they really give off a delicious minty smell.  It's important to do this before adding the mint leaves to the recipe to draw out the mintiness into the sexy cocktail.

Now, the vodka takes some of the sweetness of the pineapple away, so make sure your pineapple is nice and ripe and sweet.  Of course mint and pineapple have been paired many times before.  The sweetness of the pineapple smooths out the flavour of the mint and really compliments it.

So all of these ideas led to this recipe. Please see the video here:-


Ingredients
A quarter of a pineapple, 15 mint leaves, 6cl of apple juice, 6cl of triple distilled vodka (I like Crystal Head because of its smooth, crisp taste), 5 large cubes of ice (or 10 small ones). Of course you need a sexy cocktail glass, a blender, a straw and some cocktail sticks.


Method
Cut a quarter of a pineapple into chunks you know your blender can process. Add the pineapple and the ice to your blender. Pick the 15 fresh mint leaves. Clap your hands once and hard with the leaves in your hand. Add to the blender. Add 6cl of apple juice and 6cl of vodka to the blender. 


Blend until frothy.

Wash two pineapple leaves. Pick a couple of branches of spearmint which have plenty of mint leaves. Pierce the back of the pineapple leaves with two cocktail sticks, making sure the mint branches are at the front. CrissCross the cocktails sticks over each other to form a platform. (See my video above for exact method). Serve the drink and place the decorative branches inside. Add a straw and voila.


Please, please do remember to drink sensibly and to never ever drink and drive. This ruins lives.  However, enjoying alcohol sensibly is much more fun, anyway.  Let me know what you think on the comments below.  Feel free to subscribe to my youtube channel here and also please visit my Instagram page, my facebook page, my pinterest page and my twitter account.
