Other Information

*Caramelized Pineapple Syrup INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 to 4 tbsp Butter
  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced into half-inch wheels
  • 4 oz Sailor Jerry Rum
  • 3 L (about 12.5 cups) Organic sugar
  • 1.25 L (about 42 oz) Pineapple juice

PROCEDURE: Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add the pineapple slices and cook, turning occasionally, until darkly caramelized (10 to 15 minutes). Deglaze the pan with the rum. Add the sugar and stir vigorously until it melts into a bubbling mass. Slowly add the pineapple juice and stir to incorporate. Remove from the heat and let cool. Strain, puree the fruit and stir back into the liquid.

    This was a decent cocktail. It's basically a rum swizzle with a special syrup. The caramelized pineapple syrup offers great flavor, but it's a bit of a pain to make. Considering the effort, I'm thinking of trying the syrup in a more sophisticated drink, like a gun club punch, where it might shine a little brighter.

    A really tasty cocktail - although the ingredients individually have strong flavors, the mix is suprisingly subtle and refreshing. The carmelized pineapple recipe scales down easily, though fresh pineapple, not canned, is needed for the best flavor.
