Forbidden Fruit Liqueur

Recommended Posts

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:

 

Maceration:

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?

Thanks!

T

TT, what's the name of your place, and where is it? Thanks, and welcome to eGullet.

While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if yo posted an introduction. Browse to "Forums," select "Welcome Our New Members!," then "Start New Topic" (I assume; I don't get to see that).
