This delicious cocktail makes use of the nutritious and multifaceted pineapple. Originating in Brazil and Paraguay this obtuse looking fruit has taken crossed the world and is even used as a topical anti-inflammatory in some countries. The play on flavors and fresh components is prevalent in this delightful concoction.
