There are two steps you need to take to prepare for this cocktail. First, you need to infuse a bottle of Rum 44 with pineapple. Second, you need to create a charred pineapple syrup. Trust us, the effort is worth it.
- 2 oz. of Pineapple Infused Rum 44
- 1 oz. of fresh lime juice
- 1 oz. of Charred Pineapple Syrup
- To make the cocktail, combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
- Shake well, then double strain into a coupe glass.
- Add a dehydrated (or fresh) lime wheel as garnish.
To make the Pineapple Rum infusion:
Take a pineapple. Peel, core and cube it. Place the pineapple pieces in a large Ball jar with one bottle of Rum 44. Shake the jar daily for one week, then strain well through a cheesecloth, and then store the strained pineapple Rum 44 in your refrigerator.
To make the Charred Pineapple Syrup:
Take the remaining cubed pineapple pieces and put them in a braising pan with high walls. Dump out any remaining liquid. On medium heat, char the pineapple until they start to stick to the pan. Let all sides of the pineapple char, then remove from the pan. Add 2 cups of water, and deglaze the pan. Then, add the pineapple and 2 cups of sugar back to the pan, and simmer on low heat, stirring often for 10 minutes. Be sure to keep the pineapple pieces away from the flame during the charring process. Strain, and let the pineapple syrup cool before using.
