Piña Colada G&T
Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Hands-off time: 5 minutes
½ tin (220g) crushed pineapple, drained
¼ cup (60ml) coconut milk
2 shots (30ml each) gin
1 cup (250ml) pineapple juice
2 tins (200ml each) Schweppes Indian Tonic Water No Sugar
Desiccated coconut, toasted
Fresh pineapple, cut into triangles
Divide the crushed pineapple between two tall glasses and add a tablespoon of the pineapple syrup to each. *Chef’s Tip: For a trendy finish, dip the rims of the glasses in the crushed pineapple syrup and then in toasted coconut.
Divide the coconut milk between the two glasses and add a shot of gin to each. Stir to combine, crushing the pineapple slightly. *Chef’s Tip: Leave the gin out for a mocktail version.
Top the glasses up with ice and divide the pineapple juice and Schweppes Indian Tonic Water No Sugar between the two glasses.
Garnish each glass with a pineapple triangle and a maraschino cherry. Serve immediately and ENJOY!
