Making pineapple sizzle with this recipe
Sure, the summer season is over, but when I saw this great recipe from "A Dash of Bitters," I had to post it on the blog.
Agua Fresca de la Dietsch
1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into small chunks (mine was 22 oz.)
2 limes, juiced (about a cup of juice)
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups pomegranate juice
1/4 cup homemade grenadine
Put about a third of the pineapple chunks into a blender or food processor, along with the lime juice and sugar, and puree until smooth and the sugar fully dissolves into the liquid. Pour that out into a pitcher. Process the remaining pineapple in batches and pour into the pitcher. Add pomegranate juice and grenadine to the pitcher and stir.
Serve over ice and top with seltzer. Or, y’know, vodka. It’s your liver.
Of course, I would only add some pineapple rim sugar from Twang to make it just a little better.
