But, if you have ever tried the grilled pineapple mojito, you'll immediately add it to your list of killer cocktails for summer. As one of the best fruits for cocktails, pineapple blends well with all spirits, especially rum. Pineapple adds the much-required sweetness to your tropical-themed cocktails.

Steps to making your Grilled Pineapple Mojito:
#1. Before you get started with the drink preparation, it's imperative to prep up for the key ingredient - grilled pineapple syrup. Start by grilling the pineapple rings for a few minutes each side, preferably until caramelized and you get a good char, and then set it aside.
#2. Then, just as you would make a simple sugar syrup during your baking or mixology adventures, take a small saucepan, and add water and brown sugar. Heat it until it's dissolved well.
#3. Next, muddle away the grilled pineapple along with the syrup in the same saucepan. Cool it down, strain the syrup and store it away in the refrigerator inside a bottle with Silicone Stainless Pourer.
