Rum Soaked Pineapple Pops

Rum Soaked Pineapple Pops

Pineapple season is here! Although it’s still a tad colder here in the US than in the tropics, it’s still completely acceptable to soak your vacation-related produce in booze. My hard liquor consumption is fairly infrequent, but lately booze has worked it’s way into my kitchen. I’m much more of a beer and wine kind of girl, but rum has some beautiful flavors that pair nicely with pineapples.

Although this would make an excellent blended drink, there is something that feels special about eating liquor right off a stick.

Orecchiette Pasta with Pale Ale Parmesan Cream Sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup pale ale
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • ½ cup parmesan
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ salt
  • pinch cayenne
  • ½ cup English peas
  • 3 cups Orecchiette Pasta
  • 1 cup water

Directions

  1. In a pot over medium high heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add the beer, cream and lemon juice; reduce heat to maintain a simmer. About a tablespoon at a time, add the Parmesan, stirring until melted before adding more.
  3. Add the dry pasta, water and peas, simmer, stirring frequently, until pasta is al dente and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

Notes

To make this recipe using fresh, not dried, pasta, omit the water.

    1. I’m with you, I could use a vacation about now! We need to get some rum drinks and celebrate our cookbooks!

  1. This sounds so incredibly good! Just heard there will be more snow here in Amsterdam, so I definitely need some sunshine in my food. This would be perfect!

    1. I loved Amsterdam! It was so beautiful, and the people were so nice. I bet it’s gorgeous when it snows, although the bicyclists probably aren’t thrilled.

  2. Oh man these look incredible. I’d probably want to add some lime juice/zest to the simple syrup, or dip them in sweetened coconut before I froze them…

  3. Love this! Just made them today with mango rum! can’t wait to try them tomorrow, they smelled delicious! 🙂
