Ginger-pineapple fizz


A most refreshing beachside drink. Make the cordial in advance and you're more than halfway there. Chill the tonic, pick up some ice on the way and you have a perfectly tropical tipple. Extra chopped pineapple, too, is never a bad thing.

You'll need

To serve: lime wedges and mint sprigs To serve: chilled tonic water   Ginger-pineapple cordial 1 ripe pineapple (about 1.8kg), coarsely chopped 50 gm ginger, finely grated 660 gm (3 cups) caster sugar 120 ml gin ½ bunch mint Juice of 4 limes

Method

  • 01
  • For ginger-pineapple cordial, purée pineapple and ginger in a blender, then transfer to a large saucepan. Add sugar, gin and 250ml water, and bring to the boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium and simmer until a light syrup forms (40-45 minutes). Strain through a fine sieve, pressing on solids to extract all liquid, add mint to hot syrup, then refrigerate until chilled. Discard mint, stir in lime juice and refrigerate in a sterile container until required.
  • 02
  • Pour cordial into a tall jug or individual glasses, add ice, lime wedges and mint sprigs, and top up with chilled tonic water to taste. Give it a good stir and serve.
