Equipment

  • blender

Ingredients

  • 1 whole fresh pineapple, peeled and cored
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar depending on how sweet your pineapple already is
  • 1 whole lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves add more or less depending on your taste
  • 1 cup white rum, such as Brazilian cachaça rum

Instructions

  • Cut the lime in 4 pieces, then, add them to a cup or cocktail shaker
  • Add the mint leaves, and muddle well
  • Add the rum*, or the cachaça, to the muddled minty-lime juice, stir and set this mixture aside**
  • Meanwhile, peel, core then dice a whole fresh pineapple. Discard the skin and the core, then, add the pineapple chunks into a blender with the sugar and pure it. You'll blend this for a few minutes, until there are no chunks left, and you're left with a super creamy, foamy mixture. No need to add water or ice here. We basically want to make a pineapple cream!
  • After that, add that creamy pineapple juice to a pitcher, or punch bowl, and top it with ice
  • Remove and discard the limes from the shaker/cup. Then add the minty-lime booze mixture to the pineapple juice. I prefer my drink to be more pineapply, so I try to not add all the mint to the pitcher, to avoid the mint flavor from taking over. But, you can pour all the mint leaves in if you want, or just a few, or none at all. Up to you!
  • Stir and serve!

Cheers! Or as we say it in Portuguese, Saúde!!

    Notes

    *The recipe calls for a cup of rum, but you can add more or less - I won't judge! :P
    **Letting the lime and the mint sit in the alcohol for a little bit, will make sure all those minty-lime flavors infuse into the booze.
