Pineapple liqueur adds a very tropical flavor to any drink. It has a very sweet and mellow taste and is thoroughly enjoyable on its own or mixed.

When preparing your pineapple, be sure to use ones that are fresh, fully ripened and still have green leaves on top, not dried or browned. The pineapple should be skinned completely as shown right. Cut up into smaller pieces, it is added to the recipe in thin chunks which may later be used to make pineapple jam or preserves with a kick. The pineapple core may also be added to this recipe, whole, as it contains much sugar and flavor.

After pressing all the liquid from the pineapple chunks, consider using them in a pineapple cake.

The liqueur makes a glorious pina colada.
