Default New infusion idea

Just read JMacs inroduction and this gave me and idea of making a new rum infusion (Thanks John):

Quote from his JMacs post: Well to put it mildly the rum was STRONG and had a Raspberry meets Hot Cinnamon schnapps meets black pepper flavour.

What about making an infusion with JW&N overproof and raspberries and black peppers? I just feel that idea stucked in my head now and i bet i can`t sleep properly until i`ve started experimenting with this..

Strawberries and black pepper are a wonderful combination - raspberries may well work as well

And then I wonder which would be best, to use the dried black peppers or the fresh ones which are green? the fresh black pepper has such a fresh fragrance.

Absolut has their New Orlenas product which is Mango and Black Pepper flavored vodka. Its the first ever Absolut product that I enjoyed. Apparently black pepper works well with many fruits. Let us know how raspberries work out!

I've always enjoyed fresh cantaloupe with black pepper on it. Having recently sampled a mango infused rum that reminded me of cantaloupe, I can't help but think that mango and black pepper would be good.

Any recommendations on blackberry?

I've got a blackberry infusion running...it's entering day 5 and SWMBO is not yet satisfied with it (because she says the rum flavor is still stronger than the berry flavor).

Dood, we tried a Blackberry-Raspberry Rum a while back. While it was very pretty, it tasted much more of raspberries. Perhaps more work is needed in processing blackberries... something to release their oils better.

Maybe poaching em... or roasting em...

Or you can just give it more time for the alcohol to break down the membrane of the blackberry balls. (I dont know what to call em! hehe)
