Another yummy, refreshing summertime cocktail. The fresh fruit makes it to die for. Takes a little bit of time to "muddle" the fruit, but it's all worth it in the end.
- 3 fresh strawberries
- 3 slices canned pineapple
- 1⁄2 ounce pineapple syrup, from the can
- 1⁄4 ounce lime juice
- 1⁄4 ounce simple syrup (or see alt. below)
- 2 ounces white rum
- Muddle (mash) fruit.
- Pour over ice with other ingredients.
- (To make simple syrup, dissolve one part sugar in one part boiling water; let cool).
- Shake vigorously.
- Garnish with fruit.
We just loved this drink! I made double the recipe, to share with DH. He loved it TOO! I used fresh pineapple, as I had it on hand and subbed coconut rum for the same reason. Tropical and toothsome, all at the same time! I used our large caliber straws, to suck up all of the chunky, fruity goodness. I will most definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing, PSU Lioness.
Flipside...this is awesome...at first you wonder "why the heck aren't I just sticking this in the blender" and then you try it just muddled...wow. Perfect for a hot summer day. You really have to muddle the heck out of it, and I muddled it with the ice, and you still get a bunch of fruit pieces. Basically this is a half drink, half fruit cocktail. I drank, slurpped and chewed this, and will do so again and again!!! It was refreshing and fabulous! Thanks for posting!
