Recipe Type: Cocktail
Serves: 4
Ingredients
PINEAPPLE GARNISH
  • 12 or more (3/4-inch) cubes fresh pineapple
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon Aleppo pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
MULLED PINEAPPLE JUICE
  • 1 tablespoon whole allspice berries
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cups pineapple juice
  • 6 ounces dark rum
  • 2 ounces brandy
  • 1 vanilla bean pod, split in half lengthwise, seeds scraped out
Instructions
  1. For the Pineapple Garnish: Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil and arrange pineapple cubes in a single layer. Combine sugar, Aleppo pepper, ground cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle pineapple cubes with sugar mixture and toss to coat evenly. Rearrange pineapple in a single layer and broil until caramelized, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer tray to cooling rack. When cool enough to handle, skewer at least 3 pineapple cubes onto each of 4 short skewers or sturdy toothpicks.
  2. For the Mulled Pineapple Juice: Place allspice, peppercorns, cloves, and cinnamon sticks in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add pineapple juice, rum, brandy, and vanilla bean and seeds and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to lowest setting and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and discard solids. To serve, place one pineapple skewer in each of 4 heat-proof cups. Ladle juice into cups.
