The Porthole is a simple, beautiful infusion vessel designed by Martin Kastner. It can be used to create striking cocktails, oils, teas, dressings, lemonade, coffee, or any other type of cold infusion.
Directions Arrange spices in the Porthole cavity. Close the Porthole and check for a good seal. Fill the Porthole with simple syrup -or any preferred syrup. Infuse for an hour and up to several days. If infusing longer than one week, refrigerate to extend shelf life. For faster infusion, double the amount of each spice.
Serving Ideas Pour into coffee or black tea. Pour over pancakes, waffles and yogurt. Add to French Toast egg mixture. Experiment with mixed cocktails. Tweak the recipe to your taste and report back your favorite choices!
