Ingredients
  • 1 stalk lemongrass
  • 3/4 cup peeled and sliced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Ice
  • 2 cups pineapple juice, chilled
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup white rum, chilled
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 4 fresh mint sprigs or 4-inch pieces lemongrass, for garnish
Directions

With the back of a heavy chef's knife, bruise the lemongrass stalk to expose the inside fibers and cut it into 1-inch lengths. Combine the lemongrass pieces, ginger, sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook a few minutes until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and steep for 20 minutes.

Strain the syrup into a bowl, discarding the solids. Place the bowl over a larger bowl filled with ice and whisk the syrup until it cools.

Combine the pineapple juice, coconut milk, rum and all of the cooled syrup in a blender and blend; it will make a nice frothy layer on top.

Pour into 4 tumblers with or without ice and garnish with the mint or lemongrass.
