OK, I lied. This recipe doesn’t come from Puerto Rico. It comes from the kitchen of a small apartment in LA occupied by a mixologist of great skill. There’s a pool, and palm trees, it’s tropical enough for our purposes. He learned this one from friends in Raleigh, NC with whom he hopes to vacation in Puerto Rico someday.
1-2 trays pineapple juice ice cubes
drink umbrellas – awesome but optional.
Fill a double old fashioned glass with pink lemonade. Drop in 3-4 ice cubes, and add rum to taste. Add umbrella at a jaunty angle. Drink. Repeat.
Depending on glassware and presentation, these can go from the beach to the ballroom. A perfect signature cocktail for a wedding, or for a lazy day by the pool.
Anybody see my beach towel? Or my drink umbrella?
