Mixology events cocktail making class drink Pineapple Picante Smash recipe

How to make ...

Alcohol-Free Pineapple Picante Smash

Smashes lend themselves naturally to alcohol-free versions and even before the advent of the many alcohol-free spirits that are available today, a drink like this would have been just as effective without the booze. 

Method

In a julep tin, add the pineapple chunks, chilli slices and lime quarter.

Muddle thoroughly using a muddler.

Using a jigger to measure add the Seedlip, pineapple juice and sugar syrup. 

Fill cup 2/3 with crushed ice.

Use a bar spoon to churn the cocktail (scooping ingredients from the bottom and stirring simultaneously). 

Top with a dome of crushed ice. 

Garnish with a straw, lime wheel and napkin jacket around the tin. 

Serve and enjoy.

Equipment

Jigger/measure
Muddler
Bar spoon
Crushed ice

History

Our Pineapple Picante Smash pairs the flavours of sweet fruity pineapple, warm spicy chilli and sharp tangy tequila. We could just ditch the tequila and up the pineapple juice and this would be a delicious little spicy pineapple number, but to really capture the essence and excitement of the original we use Seedlip’s ‘Spice 94’ in place of the spirit. This gives us some of the much-needed dryness and tang usually provided by the tequila and the spicy flavour works in perfect harmony with the chilli in the cocktail.
