Pineapple Daiquiri
2 oz Stiggins’ Fancy Plantation Pineapple rum
1 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz fresh lime juice

Fill a coupe of cocktail glass with ice and set aside to chill the glass. Al all ingredients to a shaking tin and shake with ice cubes. Discard the ice from the coupe glass and strain into that chilled coupe glass.


Pineapple Express
3/4 oz pineapple juice (fresh if at all possible)
1/2 oz fresh white grapefruit juice
1/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz falernum
1/2 oz honey mix
1 oz Plantation Dark rum
3/4 oz Stiggins’ Fancy Plantation Pineapple rum
3/4 oz Plantation O.F.T.D. rum
1 dash Bittermens ‘Elemakule Tiki Bitters

Flash blend with 12 oz crushed ice. Pour unstrained into a tiki mug or double old-fashioned glass. Garnish with pineapple leaves and a pineapple chunk on a bamboo skewer or pick.

No tiki bitters? No problem - omit them and you’ll have an even more pineapple-forward, slightly less complex cocktail.
