  • 1 ripe pineapple
  • 3 Cups 80 proof vodka
  • 1 Cup water
Instructions

  2. Combine with coriander, cinnamon, vodka and water in mixing jar.
  3. Cover. Let infuse for two weeks.
  4. Strain liqueur through fine sieve.

Notes
For a most interesting twist, caramelize the pineapple by searing peeled, thick cut slices on the grill before cutting up and using in this recipe. It adds a flavor reminiscent of pineapple upside down cake.
