Pineapple Spice Drink

READY IN: 12hrs 15mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

From "South of the Sahara: Traditional Cooking from the Lands of West Africa" by Elizabeth A. Jackson. This spicy, fruity drink needs to sit in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours and as much as a day. It can also be the basis for a wonderful cocktail made with rum or vodka.

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!
