Grilled pineapple mojito

There's TONS of mint growing in our backyard, so clearly this is a sign that we need to make more mojitos.

Mojitos have it all going for them: citrus, herbs, bubbles + rum. It's kind of perfect, but you can always improve upon a classic. So this one has even more lime (in the form of simple syrup!) + grilled pineapples.

Sip on that.

Grilled pineapple mojito (per mojito)

  • 3 cubes fresh pineapple
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 handful fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1.5 oz. white rum
  • 1 tablespoon lime simple syrup (recipe below)
  • Lemon lime seltzer
  1. Start by grilling the pineapple + lime. Heat a griddle pan on medium heat (or use an actual grill if you're fancy). Grill the pineapple + lime. Once you see grill marks you're there.
  2. In a large glass add the mint + fresh lime juice. Muddle together.
  3. Add the rum + simple syrup. Stir.
  4. Add ice to the glass + top it all off with lemon lime seltzer.

  2. Keep stirring until the sugar completely dissolves. Remove from the heat + cool.
