Does anyone have any recipes for Forbidden Fruit Liqueur?
I'm about to launch a new menu and we are making in house, but I wanted to see how on or off base I am, since I've never been lucky enough to try the real stuff. There is a bottle on ebay right now, but sadly it's out of my budget....
Here's what I was able to come up with based on looking into various sources online and in print:
300 ml inexpensive grape brandy
300 ml vodka 100 proof
150 ml high quality grapefruit syrup (giffard or d'arbo is my go-to)
zest of one pommelo
Maceration instructions: let macerate covered overnight or for 48 hours if possible
Run maceration through a fine filter and set aside
Add 0.5 grams of citric acid powder to balance acidity (or to taste)
Any suggestions folks?
