Thrift Item of the Moment

Pineapple Passion


Pineapple corer – 50¢ at a garage sale.


It works like a big corkscrew to scoop out the insides of a pineapple


Vodpod videos no longer available.

Easier than it looks in this video. I was aghast when she threw out the shell…


because my whole purpose in buying this gadget was to hollow out pineapples to make vessels for  tropical cocktails.

Pina Passion

1 ounce lime juice
3/4 ounce passion fruit nectar
1/2 ounce peach brandy
3/4 ounce Demerara rum
3/4 ounce gold rum
1 pineapple slice
3/4 ounce honey

Blend w/a cup of crushed ice, pour and drink.


Peach brandy isn’t available here, so I used apricot brandy. As well, after searching all over town I couldn’t find any passion fruit nectar or juice, so I used a blend of tropical juices that had passion fruit in it (as well as mango, guava, pineapple, papaya and peach). Mighty tasty regardless.


Don’t forget to garnish.
