Smokin' Pineapple Margarita
It was a joyous time when I learned how easy it was to smoke just about anything in an electric smoker!! There are recipes for my Kona Coffee Barbecue Sauce and Kona Coffee Rub on our website. I love to rub a pork butt, wrap it in a banana leaf and smoke it! I didn’t want to only use one tray in the smoker and we had just harvested a ton of pineapples, so I decided put a pineapple in the smoker too! If the pineapple is a little under ripe, just sprinkle a little brown sugar on it.
I serve the pineapple along side the pork for a delicious meal. To get the pineapple ready for the smoker, I slice the whole pineapple in half from top to bottom and cut and cube the flesh. I put the chunks back into the flesh and smoke the pineapple for about 4 hours on a metal pan (to catch the juices). After dinner I was noticing how much juice was left in the remaining flesh and had a few leftover chunks of pineapple. It smelled so awesome! So I pulled out the juicer and processed the leftovers. The juice was incredible! Sweet and smoky. Truly something special. Since then, I’ve filled the smoker with just pineapples so I would have a stash of this delicious nectar.
1 shot Tequila
1 shot Triple Sec
2 shots Smoked Pineapple Juice (from smoked pineapples)
1/2 shot of lemongrass simple syrup
Squeeze of Lime
Mix all ingredients in a shaker to mix and then pour over an ice filled margarita glass! I opted out of salting the rim because the drink is so delicious as is!
