- 1 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
- 1-ounce vodka
- 1-ounce orange liqueur, recommended: Cointreau
- 1/2-ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- Turbinado sugar, for the rim (optional)
- Fresh wedges of pineapple
- Maraschino cherry
Chill a martini glass in the freezer. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the pineapple juice, vodka, orange liqueur, and lime juice. Cover and shake vigorously, until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, by the time the shaker mists up the drink is ready.)
Scatter some turbinado sugar onto a small plate, wet the rim of the glass and dip into sugar. Strain the drink into the chilled glass. Skewer the pineapple and cherry and drop into the cocktail. Cheers.
