Scent of the Tropics Pineapple Liqueur

Scent of the Tropics Pineapple Liqueur

I'm totally into making fruit liqueurs at the moment.
Last year I made some really good strawberry and European pear liqueurs so this year I'm challenging myself to pineapple flavoured one.


White liquor
750 ml
Crystal rock sugar
same volume as fruit


1. Sterilize a bottle. If you don't have a pan big enough to fit the bottle in, rinse it in plenty of boiling water and make sure to rinse the inside well as well. [Be careful not to burn yourself here!!]
2. Peel the pineapple and cut out the hard core in the middle. Throw this portion away and cut the rest of the flesh into bite-sized pieces. Make sure the pineapple doesn't get too moist.
3. Once the bottle has finished air-drying, add the pineapple and crystal rock sugar. Then pour in the white liquor.
4. After a few days the crystal rock salt should dissolve so give the bottle a shake every so often to mix things up. If the fruit contains a lot of juice, the liqueur will be ready to drink in around 2 months.

Story Behind this Recipe

There's a bar I go to that makes lots of fruit liqueurs. They taste really good so I asked them how to make it at home and now I'm trying out lots of different flavors on my own .
