Ok, here are the results of my second try with the fruit infuser-this time with mangoes and coconut water. After 4 hours, I got a rich mango liqueur-like flavored beverage with very little coconut water taste.
It’s so syrupy and fruity sweet, I only imbibe a little at a time.
Fruit Infuser Recipe
For this taste test, I filled the infuser core with 3 sliced mangoes plus the pits (to extract all the flavor) and a short stalk of spearmint leaves. Then I filled the pitcher with 2-one liter containers of coconut water. Next, I placed the pitcher in the refrigerator for the fruit and herb flavors to infuse into the coconut water.

Wait a minute! That should be an oxymoron: coconut water and vodka? Hmmm….
