It is always exciting with new bottles. Gnista is a Swedish non-alcoholic product that mimics dark spirits like cognac or whisky. We’ve mixed with it once before, but wanted a second go taking the product in a slightly more exotic direction.
So we decided to use some fresh pineapple juice as a base, adding the Gnista and also yuzu juice for freshness and acidity. What we always like about pineapple juice is how frothy it gets when shaken, and it creates a pleasing foam on top of the drink when poured.
The combination here worked so well we think. The slightly bitter Gnista combined with sweet pineapple and sour yuzu was super delicious. A perfect Sunday brunch drink!
