We find juicy fruits like pineapple, kiwis, peaches, and pears to work the best, and you can use any liquor your heart desires. Vodka picks up the flavors of the fruits very nicely while liquors like rum and brandy add their own fruit flavors to the mix. And believe us, these soaked fruits pack a powerful boozy punch! One skewer is about the equivalent of a fairly stiff cocktail.
We also really like this idea from the blog Chaos in the Kitchen for sprinkling each skewer with spices like cinnamon and ginger before serving. She also chars each kebab on the grill to caramelize the sugars and give the fruit a smoky flavor. That sounds incredibly delicious.
