3 Tasty Pineapple Cocktails You MUST Try This Summer

There are so many ways and reasons to use pineapples in your next cocktail. Pineapple is chock-full of Vitamin C, which strengthens your immune system, the body’s defense against germs. Some cultures consider pineapple to be a medicine because it has a substance called bromelain that may reduce inflammation.

Pineapples: A Brief History

In 1398, the English word pineapple was first registered to describe coniferous trees’ reproductive organs, now known as pine cones. European scientists discovered this tropical fruit in 1664 and named it pineapples. Since pineapples were so rare centuries ago, only extremely wealthy people could afford them. People would even rent the exotic fruit to display at dinner parties. In 1677, the pineapple was such a coveted fruit in Europe that King Charles II of England posed for a portrait while holding a pineapple, an act that signified his royal privilege. 

In the present day, they are found in tropical and subtropical countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, India, and China.

How to Prepare Pineapple

Pineapples can be found at grocery stores and markets all over the world. In the store, try to find a pineapple that is heavy for its size. It should be free of soft spots and dark spots. When the pineapple is ripe, the end should smell sweet.

This tropical fruit can be easily cut with a sharp knife. Cut off the top and bottom of the fruit so you have two flat surfaces. Peel the pineapple, then cut it into quarters. Avoid cutting through the core.

After enjoying a pineapple, you can use the top to grow another one. While you might not start your own pineapple farm, it’s a great way to avoid food waste.

The Best Way to Store Pineapples

Once the pineapple has been cut, you can leave it on the counter for a couple days. This will make it softer and juicier, but won’t alter its flavor. Be sure to eat the pineapple within 2-3 days since it goes bad quickly.

As an older refined Vodka drinker I have to say that I love I am in love with Bellion! It’s taste goes down as easily straight as mixed in a cocktail. A pleasant smell, and I enjoy one a day as my evening cocktail, and will substitute no other!
