Ingredients:

  • Few small chunks of fresh pineapple

  • 2-1/2 oz. unsweetened pineapple juice

  • 1-1/2 oz. fresh lime juice

  • 1 oz. honey mix

  • 1-1/2 oz. demerara rum

  • 1-1/2 oz. gold puerto rican rum

  • 3/4 oz. dark jamaican rum

  • 1-1/2 oz. club soda

Put everything (EXCEPT SODA) in a blender. Blend without ice until pineapple is liquefied. Add soda. Pour unstrained into a hollowed-out pineapple filled with crushed ice (use a Vacu-Vin pineapple corer). Stir until well chilled before serving. Enjoy!

How to make Honey Mix

Honey syrup is a home-made or commercial preparation that dissolves honey with some proportion of water in order to make the homey easier to work with as a sweetener and flavoring agent. (Undiluted honey tends to be difficult to dissolve at low temperatures and can be messy.)

To Make: combine equal parts (or whatever proportion the recipe specifies) water and honey in a sauce pan on the stove. Heat, stirring, until all the sugar dissolves. (Do not boil.) Cool and bottle. Adding a ounce or so of neutral grain spirits when bottling will help preserve the syrup.

Honey syrup can also be easily infused with botanicals for creative effects!
