Pineapple Mojito!



1 1/3 pounds peeled fresh pineapple chunks

2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar


2 cups of diced fresh pineapple

1 cup lightly packed mint leaves, plus for garnish

2 cups of your favorite silver or  white rum

3/4 cup fresh lime juice


1 1/4 cups chilled club soda

Lime wedges, for garnish

First make the Syrup

In a saucepan, bring the pineapple, brown sugar and 4 cups of water to a boil.

Simmer over moderately low heat, stirring, until the pineapple is very soft and the mixture is reduced about 40 minutes.

Strain the mixture into a bowl, squeezing as much juice out of the pineapple, then discarding the fruit.

Let the syrup cool, you should have about 1 1/3 cups.

Now make the Mojitos

In a pitcher place the pineapple and mint leaves and mash around a bit.

Stir in the rum, lime juice and 1 cup of the pineapple syrup.

Pour into 8 glasses and add ice. Top with club soda and garnish with mint sprigs and lime wedges.
