Apple and Pear Sous Vide Infused Gin Recipe
The light, fruity flavors of apples and pears complement the herbal notes from the gin, resulting in a rounded infusion full of flavors. It's great in martinis and holds up well to other complex cocktails. A dry gin works best, but use whatever kind you typically like to drink.
