Rum Soaked Pineapple Pops

Rum Soaked Pineapple Pops

Pineapple season is here! Although it’s still a tad colder here in the US than in the tropics, it’s still completely acceptable to soak your vacation-related produce in booze. My hard liquor consumption is fairly infrequent, but lately booze has worked it’s way into my kitchen. I’m much more of a beer and wine kind of girl, but rum has some beautiful flavors that pair nicely with pineapples.

Although this would make an excellent blended drink, there is something that feels special about eating liquor right off a stick.

Just soak

  3. Remove pineapples from soak, skewer with toothpicks or small skewers.
  4. Place on a baking dish that has been covered with aluminum foil.
  5. Freese pineapple for 1 to 2 hours, serve immediately.

      I’m with you, I could use a vacation about now! We need to get some rum drinks and celebrate our cookbooks!

    I love boozy fruit! I have such a low tolerance that it’s gotten me in trouble a few times :D

      Haha! Is it strange that I came up with 3 boozy recipes the week I started to potty train my daughter?

    This sounds so incredibly good! Just heard there will be more snow here in Amsterdam, so I definitely need some sunshine in my food. This would be perfect!

      I loved Amsterdam! It was so beautiful, and the people were so nice. I bet it’s gorgeous when it snows, although the bicyclists probably aren’t thrilled.

    Boozy pineapples?! I’m there! I have no-soaked pineapples in the fridge at work. Maybe I can sneak out and get some rum…

    what a great idea to use pineapples as popsicles!! i’d be more inclined to eat them because of the presentation :) i’d dip them in chocolate too, haha oops ;)

    • Jackie March 7, 2013 at 10:16 am #

      I looooove that idea!

  9. Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. March 6, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

    So simple and yet so delicious! Bring on the booze!

    If only I was relaxing on a white sand beach while I ate these, my life would be perfect.

    I think I am adding pineapple to my grocery list right now. These are amazing!

  12. Kathleen March 7, 2013 at 8:18 am #

    Oh man these look incredible. I’d probably want to add some lime juice/zest to the simple syrup, or dip them in sweetened coconut before I froze them…

    • Jackie March 7, 2013 at 10:17 am #

      fabulous idea!

    What a fun twist on the traditional vodka soaked fruit. Love.
