I’m known for bringing you easy cocktail recipes that you can make at home and the Pineapple Wave is just that! A majority of the ingredients consist of products you either already have or are an easy pick-up at your local market. This mixture is sweet yet tangy thanks to the addition of pineapple juice. Pineapple juice makes a great addition to any cocktail recipe as its tanginess tends to smooth out the strong flavors from most spirits for those who prefer a less spirit-forward drink.
I personally love pineapple juice, so I was excited to add it into the mix, and it ended up becoming the star of the show!
This Pineapple Wave daiquiri has lots of flavor considering the simplicity of its ingredients. I recommend using a white rum, such as Bacardi Superior, but any variety will work fine. The combination of rum, pineapple juice, and lime juice has a delicious tropical flavor that blends perfectly with the aroma of the lime bitters.
One of my favorite things about the Pineapple Wave is that it’s refreshing and light, making it a lovely cocktail to sip on any day of the week.
Step 1: Place the basil, rum, lime juice, bitters, and pineapple juice in a shaker. Break up basil with a muddler for about a minute.
Step 2: Shake until chilled, then strain over fresh ice into a cocktail glass. Garnish with basil.
