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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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!
