Pineapple Basil Rum Fizz

Ingredients

  • 1 large pineapple
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (roughly 3 limes)
  • 5-6 large basil leaves
  • 6 oz. light rum
  • club soda, as needed
  • granulated sugar, as needed

Directions

  1. Peel and core the pineapple.  Cut into chunks.  Place the pineapple into a high-powered blender and puree for 1 to 2 minutes until smooth and pureed completely–it should yield roughly four cups of pineapple juice. The texture should be that of a thick orange juice. Transfer the pineapple juice to a large container or pitcher, and allow it to chill completely in the fridge.
  2. Place the lime juice and basil leaves in a clean blender container. Blend until the basil has been incorporated fully and no pieces remain.
  3. Combine 3 1/2 cups of pineapple juice, the lime-basil mixture, and rum in a pitcher. Stir thoroughly.
  4. Moisten the edges of chilled glasses with lime juice and dip the edges into granulated sugar. Distribute the drink evenly among glasses–leaving roughly 1/2-1-inch of space at the top. Finish with club soda. Garnish the glass with a sprig of fresh basil and slice of lime. Serve immediately.
