Sometimes I like to imagine my life is basically a Southern romance novel and I own this big old plantation house and my only job is to sit on the massive porch and sip cocktails. Not a bad life, right? Well, in the real world I don’t even have a porch and my job is most certainly not to just sit around and sip cocktails. Bummer.
Even though my life isn’t Gone with the Wind I will still gladly pretend. One of my favorite things to do is come up with a new quick and delicious cocktail. I even have a little book I keep near my bar of all my favorite drinks. I figure when I get my plantation home this book will come in handy.
One of my new favorite drinks is most definitely this little roasted pineapple and strawberry daiquiri concoction I came up with. It’s a combination of fresh summer fruit and a convenient bottled (low calorie!) strawberry daiquiri. How simple and refreshing is this little gem?
Roasted Pineapple & Strawberry Daiquiri
Yield: 1 drink
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
1 pineapple, peeled cored and sliced into wedges
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Bacardi Classic Cocktails Light strawberry daiquiri
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Add wedged pineapple to a silpat lined rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar and toss to coat.
Add to the oven and roast for about 20 minutes. It will be ready when it's slightly browned, soft and juicy.
Let the pineapple cool to room temperature. (This can be done the day before)
Add pineapple to a high powered blender, puree and add in extra pineapple juice to thin out the mixture.
To make the drink add ice to a cocktail glass, fill half with pineapple mixture and then slowly pour in the Bacardi Classic Light strawberry daiquiri. Serve with a wedge of lime.
