How'd this one turn out mate?

I had some issues with my mango attempt, wasn't as easy to draw the mango out of the fruit.

Found it weak on flavour mate. I thought the Mangoes 14/15 season were terrible though :handgestures-thumbdown: very little flavour and I couldn't find any mareeba ones anywhere :crying-blue:

Well ive put on a passionfruit will see how it turns out will strain through mesh in 2 days to remove seeds and will likely have to make a syrup to add to it

Is there a name for this that a store bought product is? i know its G Dropped here but if i was in the bottle'o what would it be called? ill try see if the missus will want to try it. Looks interesting and i should have a bunch of vodka next week and a few kilos of strawberries in the freezer :-D

i know the american version is panty dropper....
dont think its an actual store bought product.....

more like vodka gummy bears...cant buy them but lots of people have heard of them......
or vodka watermelon/oranges


im currently using 40% and as per earlier posts just enough alchohol to cover it....
using a reject shop 2 Litre preserving container as they seem to work fairly well...GLass and only 5 bucks each

i think the jar is about 1.2-1.3 l of Neutral and about a punnet punnet and a half of strawberries
didnt even bother slicing them....neutral is bright red now

The closest i think you would get to a retail g-dropper is a liqueur like Midori, malibu coconut "rum" or "Vok strawberry".
