The Idonis is a simple and sweetly pleasant cocktail. It pairs the transparent vodka with a lush apricot brandy and some pineapple for a taste of the tropics.
This cocktail seems like it would be light and airy, but the pineapple juice makes a difference. Pineapple, when shaken, takes on a foamy quality and that texture takes over everything else in the drink. That isn't at all bad and is what makes the juice a great mixer because you know it can add a mouthfeel that other mixers can't. If you don't like that "pineapple cream" feel, free to stir this drink, but do so long enough to ensure a properly mixed drink.
