Ingredients

One 16-ounce bag frozen pineapple, not thawed, or one 3 1/2-pound pineapple, trimmed, skinned, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 cup ice cubes

1 cup vanilla-flavored vodka

2/3 cup orange liqueur

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

Garnish:

Fresh pineapple slices

Paper cocktail umbrellas

Directions

Special equipment:
Paper cocktail umbrellas
  1. Blend the pineapple, ice, vodka, liqueur and sugar until smooth and frothy in a blender. Pour into chilled glasses and garnish with pineapple and paper umbrellas.

Cook’s Note

To make vanilla-flavored vodka, place 3 whole vanilla beans in a 750 ml bottle of plain vodka. Place the bottle in a cool dark place for at least 10 days to allow the vanilla to infuse the vodka. Open the bottle occasionally during the infusion time. For a non-alcoholic version, blend one 16-ounce bag of frozen pineapple, 1 cup ginger ale, 1 cup fresh orange juice, 1 cup coconut milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, if desired, until smooth in a blender.
