Pago Pago

Pago Pago

Pineapple and green Chartreuse is one of our favorite flavor combinations, albeit a rare one. Thank goodness for the Pago Pago, a 40s tiki recipe that – in this perfected incarnation from Jeff “Beachbum” Berry’s Beachbum Berry Remixed – is the best representation of this delicious combo, with a touch of white chocolate for added complexity and interest.

Canned pineapple juice is decent enough in this recipe. However, if you have access to ripe, fresh pineapple, do use it here! Older versions of the recipe even called for fresh pineapple to be muddled right in the shaker. It’s much harder to correctly measure, but absolutely divine when done right. Three or four 1-inch cubes ought to do it.

Ingredients

Instructions

If you have fresh pineapple, begin by muddling in a shaker. Top with the remaining ingredients (including pineapple juice, if you’re not using fresh), add ice, and shake. Strain (double-strain if using fresh pineapple) into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with fresh pineapple and pineapple leaves.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
