I just love this stuff! It's similar to my recipe, but no cooking! I halved the recipe, and will be drinking this often! Thanks Kate! Made for ZWT4 and the Fancy Feinschmeckers!
I followed Marra's inclination on this and used some fresh pineapple juice, but followed suit in every other ingredient. I am not a clove person per se/ however; in this drink it does bring out the taste of the pineapple and gingerroot. I made in the morning and then dumped it over some beautiful, fancy ice cubes and at the end of the day, made a refreshing wonderful, delicious drink. Perfect for the hot, Maryland weather, and will make ahead again. Garnished with a sprig of mint. Thanks, Chef Kate! Made for *ZWT4* June 2008.
Cool and refreshing. We made the frugal version, using this recipe with the peel and core of the pineapple, and the fleshy parts in another recipe. I sliced the gingerroot and doubled the cloves, but still had little spice taste in the finished juice. I would increase the cloves and grate the ginger next time.
This recipe was definitely worth the making, as unusual as the combo of ingredient sounds to me! I appreciated the combinaton of pineapple & cloves, while the gingerroot added a nice 'something' that made this drink well-worth making! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

loved this. I cheated a little because the store came out with 100% pure pineapple juice and i used it as the base with fresh pineapple pieces. Refreshing and delicious
This is very nice and fresh fruit drink! I enjoyed it as is and also with a splash of coconut rum - yum :) I also mixed some of it 3 parts water/1 part spice drink and found it makes a delightful and refreshing flavored water to drink during/after exercise! Thanks for posting this!
personally, i would not take the time out in the kitchen area to make this drink. but it does look alright
This is a great pineapple drink, Chef Kate. I love the spiciness of the drink. I let the mixture sit in the fridge for two days. It was so good. I served one drink plain and one with coconut rum, both were delicious. An excellant refreshing drink that I will be making often in the summer, thanks very much for sharing.
YUM! What a refreshing drink... I let mine steep for a day and a half and the flavours of the cloves and ginger really came though nicely. The amount of sugar is the only problem for me.. I found this a little too sweet, and I think that the pineapple juice released is sweet enough so will cut way back on the sugar next time. please see my rating system: a lovely 4 stars for a refreshingly soft spicy drink that I will be adapting just a little when I make again. Thanks!
