One of the tastiest ingredients used in tropical drinks, in my opinion, is pineapple – fresh pineapple if possible! This frosty drink calls for 1.5 cups of pineapple per drink and for the best taste possible, we used a fresh pineapple cut into chunks. At least half of the pineapple used should be frozen for the creamiest effect.
This drink is considered a daiquiri, which traditionally are not overly sweet and just a bit tart due to the addition of lime juice. If you like a sweet drink, cut back on the amount of lime juice and bump up the amount of simple syrup added. And if you like your drink even tarter, add more lime to taste!
Frozen Pineapple Daiquiri
1.5 c. chunk pineapple (at least half should be frozen)
2 oz. white rum
2 tbsp. simple syrup
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
1 – 1.5 c. ice
pineapple chunks and cherry for garnish
Blend the frozen and fresh pineapple, rum, simple syrup and lime juice. Add ice and blend until smooth and creamy. Garnish with pineapple chunks and a cherry.
