AÂ tribute to Forbidden Fruit Liqueur – my new secret ingredient.
In my quest for finding new recipes for old drinks with gin I discovered more than 10 drinks from the golden ages of cocktails that were made with an ingredient that’s not available anymore: Forbidden Fruit.
I started searching for info about the heritage, recipes etc. and found a few pages that would dare to give a guess about the way it should be made, but since the recipe apparently went lost along with the withdrawal of the product some 50 years ago or more, it’s hard to tell how it really should taste.
But after several nights in my kitchen I believe I have found the right way, and I am now the happy owner of three bottles of Forbidden Fruit.
I will list the drinks thatÂ are made with Forbidden Fruit accordingly on this blog, but in the process of finding out the real formula and usage of Forbidden Fruit, I experimented a little andÂ ended up withÂ this fantastic recipe that I dare to call Forbidden Delight:
Shake with ice andÂ strain into a frosted martini glass.
AÂ slice of strawberry.
