Inspired by the Stoli Doli cocktails at the Capital Grille, I tried to recreate that fabulous drink. But when I substituted Stoli Vanil for regular Stoli, I created something amazing. I call it Velvet Elvis.
Making my Velvet Elvis is incredibly easy and rewarding…
1.75 liter bottle Stoli Vanil
2 fresh pineapples, peeled, cored and sliced
Place pineapple slices in a glass 1-gallon container. Pour in the vanilla vodka, making sure it covers the pineapple. Seal the lid tightly, and swirl around for a few seconds.
Place the container away from light on a shelf at room temperature for 3 weeks.
At the end of the weeks, strain the liquid, and squeeze out as much as you can from the pineapple slices as well. Discard the used pineapple slices.
Enjoy Velvet Elvis on the rocks.
