Pineapple People Pleaser

My people, we have arrived. After a long, arduous winter that would not go away without a fight, we have all made it to cookout season!

Whether you're hosting or a guest, you can't come empty handed. Now, you could take a page from Baby's book.

But you will be the star of the bar (be-cue) with this tropical treat, courtesy of one of our all-time favorite customers, Emily Ramirez.


1 Pineapple

6oz Fireball whiskey

½ tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup brown sugar

dash of cayenne pepper (optional)

Fresh out of Fireball? Try a spiced rum instead. I used this one.

I also replaced the brown sugar with coconut sugar and significantly reduced the amount to about 3 tbsps.
