Charred Pineapple Basil Sprtizer

  • Author: Misfits Market


  • 1 cup ice
  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 pineapple, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch strips
  • 3 large basil leaves
  • Ginger beer


  1. Bring a grill pan to medium heat. Add pineapple slices and allow to cook for 6-9 minutes or until charred. Flip and repeat with all pieces.
  2. Transfer pineapple to a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a jar until ready to use.
  3. For the cocktail, add a few handfuls of ice to a cocktail shaker. Top with lemon juice, bourbon, 4 ounces of pineapple purée, and basil leaves. (For even more flavor, “clap” the leaves between your hands before adding to the cocktail shaker.) Shake for about 1 minute.
  4. Strain and distribute into 3 ice-filled cups. Top with ginger beer and enjoy!
