CLOUDS OVER NYC

This cocktail was created to inspire budding “alchemists” to create their own blends of Grey Goose Vodka infusions. For this cocktail we infused Grey Goose with black peppercorns for one and a half hours, then strained out all the excess and used the clear-infused liquid as the base for the cocktail. We then combined flavours of fresh litchi and cloudy apple and hints of plum bitters to the mix to create a spicy yet fresh cocktail with a summery finish.

Ingredients
50ml black pepper-infused Grey Goose Vodka
1 1/2 spoons castor sugar
12,5ml fresh lemon juice
10-12 whole peppercorns
25ml fresh litchi juice
25ml cloudy apple juice
2 dashes plum bitters
Tall glass filled with crushed ice, garnished with apple fan and black pepper

Method
Pour all ingredients into a tall glass with crushed ice. Stir and top further with crushed ice. Garnish with apple fan.
