Print Email

1 cup fresh or canned Pineapple, cubed
2 tablespoons coconut milk
1 teaspooon lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
2 oz light rum
Maraschino cherry

In the container of a blender combine pineapple with coconut milk, lime juice and sugar. Blend the mixture at high speed until it is a thick purée. Strain the purée through four thicknesses of cheesecloth, pressing the cloth to extract all the juice, and discard the pineapple pulp.

Chill the juice and return it to the blender with 1 1/4 cups firmly packed finely crushed ice and 2 ounces light rum. Blend the mixture at high speed for about 30 seconds, or just until it is the consistency of soft sherbet. Pour the drink into a highball glass and decorate it with a stick of fresh pineapple and a Maraschino cherry. Serve the drink with a straw. The rum may be omitted, if desired.
