Sparkling Pineapple

Sparkling Pineapple

The Sparkling Pineapple is a specialty of the Benihana chain of Japanese-fusion restaurants, and it’s one of our favorite ways to use up a bottle of sparkling sake.

Benihana’s original recipe calls for Bacardi Pineapple Fusion rum – but we find it infinitely more delicious with a proper rum that uses pineapples in the distillation process, rather than flavored after-the-fact. The best example of these is Plantation’s Pineapple Stiggins’ rum, and it makes for a stunning Sparkling Pineapple.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the pineapple rum, ginger liqueur and pineapple juice to a shaker with ice. Squeeze the lime wedge in and discard. Shake it all up, then strain into a short glass and top with the sparkling sake. Garnish with a wedge of pineapple or a wheel of lime.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
