Last week I received a lovely gift of Mini Copper Pineapples from the lovely team at Absolutely . The Elyx Pineapple of Hospitality arrived as a set of three, in the most beautiful packaging. I do a lot of on the road missions and these babies are perfectly compact and easy for me to travel with, making them the perfect addition as my “party starter” drinking vessels. As part of the gift, I also received a booklet which unpacked some information I’d love to share with you.
About the ABSOLUTE ELYX Pineapple of Hospitality:
The pineapple is said to be a symbol of hospitality, and has been for centuries. It began as a rare treat displayed by nobility at their most luxurious banquets to demonstrate that no expense had been spared. The pineapple meant that you were truly welcome and your presence was an honour. See why these make the perfect hosting vessels?!
Created in Åhus in southern Sweden, Absolut Elyx is a luxury, hand-crafted vodka. Every drop of Absolute Elyx is made from soft, winter wheat from a Single Estate. It then goes through a copper distillation process which contributes to the silky smooth finish of Elyx and hence #CopperMakesItBetter
We have distilled our knowledge and in-house expertise to create the very essence of Absolute Vodka in Elyx.
Below I’ve shared my favourite cocktail recipe I enjoyed off of the booklet received. Alternatively, you can simply enjoy the Absolute Elyx neat over ice.
2 parts Elyx Vodka
1 part Lillet Rose
1 bar spoon Raspberry Syrup
1 dash Lemon Bitter
Add Elyx, Lillet Rose, raspberry syrup and lemon bitters to a mixing glass and shake with ice until well-chilled. Fine-strain into a glorious miniature copper pineapple.
I hope you enjoy the above cocktail as much as I did, and if you have any recipes to share feel free to drop them for me in the comments section below.
