Frozen Pineapple Daiquiri

As long as I'm going through all the Daiquiris, I might as well finish the Frozen Pineapple version. The Funny thing is that this drink is so similar to the Pineapple Daiquiri that I'm sure it developed on a parallel line from the Daiquiri, but one that didn't cross. For instance, an American bartender realized that one can easily transform a Frozen Daiquiri in to a pineapple one by adding juice and a pineapple spear. Someone in the tropics came up with a recipe involving pineapple chunks, not juice, and pineapple syrup, not sugar, to get the same effect. And it is pretty much the same thing, really.

How did I distinguish them on my blog? I put it in a pineapple tiki mug. No pineapple spear, use a whole pineapple (in ceramic form)!

Pineapple syrup is easy to create. Just make a simple syrup using chunk pineapple and pineapple juice and adding equal parts of sugar. You'll have to heat the mixture in a pan to near boiling and stir while adding sugar until it all dissolves. Then strain the syrup and store it in an airtight container.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 2 oz. fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 tsp. pineapple syrup
  • pineapple spear
Combine all ingredients except for pineapple spear in a blender with cracked ice and blend until smooth. Pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with pineapple spear. (Alternatively, use a tiki mug!)
