Pineapple Mojito

  • Serves

    makes ONE COCKTAIL

HELEN ROSNER

This twist on a mojito, from the Wynn & Encore resort pools in Las Vegas, combines pineapple- and coconut-infused rum with fresh pineapple and mint for a fruity, vacation-inspired drink.

Ingredients

FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP:

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar

FOR THE COCKTAIL:

  • 12 mint leaves
  • 2 oz. fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz. simple syrup
  • 2 oz. pineapple-coconut rum (like Bacardi Fusion)
  • 12 oz. Grand Marnier
  • 3 oz. ginger ale

Instructions

Step 1

For the simple syrup: Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil, and then set to the side to cool. Reserve any unused portion in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

Step 2

For the cocktail: In a Collins glass, muddle the pineapple and mint. Fill with ice. In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, shake together rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and Grand Marnier. Strain into glass and top with ginger ale.
