Cocktail, culinary, and design innovators Eric Prum and Josh Williams’s passion for infusing oils, spirits, and waters began one summer nearly a decade ago when the two first made peach-infused bourbon. They were awestruck. The seemingly simple process of adding fresh, local peaches to a Mason jar of Kentucky bourbon, and infusing the mixture for a handful of weeks had resulted in something so much greater than the sum of its parts. Infuse: Oil, Spirit, Water (Clarkson Potter/Publishers; on sale May 19, 2015; $25.00; 978-0-8041-8676-6) is both an instructional manual and an idea book for infusing oils, spirits, and waters with ingredients that are always fresh and flavorful.
In Infuse, Eric and Josh share not only their favorite infusions, but also more than 50 recipes for how to use them in food and cocktails, such as a spicy chili oil drizzled atop a grilled pizza bianca or a hot toddy spiked with the peach bourbon that started it all years ago. Sample recipes featured in the book include:
- OIL: Garlic Confit Oil; Spicy Calabrian Chili Oil; Snap Pea & Herb Salad with the Perfect Simple Vinaigrette
- SPIRIT: Roasted Pineapple Mezcal; Peach Bourbon; Cranberry Rum Punch with Cranberry-infused Rum
- WATER: Pineapple Mint Coconut Water; Jalapeño-Spiked Grapefruit Water; Pancakes with Blueberry-infused Maple Syrup
