Sparkling Pineapple

Sparkling Pineapple cocktail with pineapple rum, ginger liqueur, pineapple juice, lime, and sparkling sake

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.
