**This project was completely inspired by the Edible Cocktails article and video in The New York Times. It's basically a DIY version of the exact same process they showcase in the article.**
Step 1: Materials
- Various fruits with a high content of air within their cell structures. I tried apples, grapes, cucumbers, watermelon and oranges...see results section in step 8 to see what worked best.
- Your favorite cocktail ingredients - the more experimental the better
- Vessels large enough to hold your fruit
- Knife and cutting board
- Vacuum chamber w/ pressure gauge and pressure release
- Vacuum pump
