The flavors of Spring have sprung and fresh fruits like lemons, limes, oranges, and pineapple are ripe and ready for your attention.  The Boulder Locavore food and drink blog has come up with a great spring drink idea for your well ripened pineapples.  Homemade Pineapple Infused Rum takes the sweet, spiny fruit and bathes it in rum for a great spin on conventional rum.  To make this recipe, you’ll need…

  • 1 medium pineapple,
  • 2 cups of light or dark rum
  • 1 sealable quart glass jar
  • Two weeks

First, peel and core your pineapple and cut it in half vertically, and then cut one half into 4 spears, reserving 3 of the spears for the drink.  Next, chop and place 3 of the spears and rum in a sealable 1 quart glass jar and let the two infuse together for 2 weeks in a cool dark place.  After 2 weeks, if enough pineapple flavor is infused, remove the pineapple and reseal, storing in a dark cool location.

To add a bit of fun, you twist the stalk of your pineapple from the flesh and place the bottom of it into water.  In about 2 weeks the stalk will root, and you’ll have your own pineapple plant.  You can also, reserve your rummed up pineapple spears for ice cream, muffins, and garnishes.
