Batida de Pina

In Spanish, Batida means to beat or smash. So this drink is really a pineapple smash cocktail with rum. The recipe calls for fresh pineapple, not canned, and if you have fresh pineapple, you also have a shell. I carved out the top half of this pineapple to make a single serving cup; and the nice thing is that the fruit around the edges gains a rum sweetness and alcohol from holding the drink.
  • 3 oz. light rum
  • 2/3 cup fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • mint sprig
Blend all ingredients except mint sprig (and tiny umbrella) in a blender with ice until smooth. Pour into a highball glass (or pineapple shell). Garnish with the mint sprig.
