I was also very happy with this infusion. I would always recommend using frozen fruit when infusing with berries.
CRE8ion by Jess Morton
Frozen raspberries are harvested at peak ripeness, and the freezing process breaks down the cell walls of the fruit. Perfect for fast infusions. This infusion also had the perfect tart/sweet balance, and the jasmine blossoms helped give the final product a grassy note. This is another fruit-forward spirit infusion without the sugar.
One thing I would change is to add some jasmine blossom water. The dried jasmine blossoms added some nice flavours, but didn’t contribute that signature floral note I was hoping for. I would add a tablespoon of jasmine blossom water to the infusion before dilution. Would definitely make it again. This one has tons of cocktail applications from cosmos, to a French 75, to highball fizz.
