- 6 ounces fresh pineapple, sliced
- 4 cups hot water
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (4 large lemons)
Step 1 – Heat a grill over medium-high. Add pineapple slices in a single layer, and cook 5 to 6 minutes on each side, until dark char marks appear. Set grilled pineapple slices aside to cool. *A grill pan can be used for grilling, but for best results, grill over charcoal or wood.
Step 2 – Combine 4 cups hot water and sugar in a large pitcher, and stir with a whisk until sugar is dissolved.
Step 3 – Process pineapple and lemon juice in a blender until relatively smooth.
Step 4 – Pour pineapple mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a pitcher with sugar mixture; discard solids. Stir well until fully blended. Serve over ice.
Bartender Tip – For a boozy spin add a splash of silver rum or tequila.
