1 teaspoon thyme leaves, plus small sprigs for garnish
2 bottles, 12 ounces each, ginger beer or all-natural ginger soda
1 whole pineapple, peeled, eyes removed, and sliced into 8 even slices
1 tablespoon sugar
If not using the ginger ice immediately, refreeze. To loosen it, scrape with a heavy fork until fluffy. Ginger beer is very spicy and the spiciness is enhanced when frozen. For milder ice, use natural ginger ale or ginger soda.
