DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the pineapple and chop the flesh, removing core and "eyes.".
  • You should have about 1 lb of fruit.
  • Put pineapple in food processor or blender and add the lime juice and half the mineral water.
  • Puree to a smooth pulp.
  • Stop processor and scrape the mixture from the side once or twice during processing.
  • Place a strainer over a large bowl.
  • Tip the pineapple pulp into the strainer and press it through with a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the strained mixture into a large jug, cover and chill in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  • Stir in the remaining mineral water and sugar to taste.
  • Serve with ice.
  • (I'm thinking the grown-ups may want to add something else as well - rum or vodka or tequila all come to mind).
