I preferred liquorice - the black, salty kind.
But then I tried a Hawaii ring. A candy shaped like a slice of pineapple out of the Del Monte can - consisting of a pineapple tasting jelly center coated with dark chocolate.
I loved it.
For some reason I thought about this candy, that has long been discontinued, when I read the theme for this months Mixology Monday.
I asked Stewart - the gracious host - of the party if it was okay to invert candy into cocktail and got the go ahead.
So here is my contribution - a liquid dessert:
- 6 cl white rum (I used Banks 5 island white rum, but a slightly drier white rum would be a tiny bit better)
- 3 cl white creme de cacao
- 12 cl fresh pineapple juice
- Dash of Bitter Truth Xocolatl Mole Bitters
Enjoy and thanks for hosting Stewart! (For some reason I always imagine that the hosts of Mixology Monday try all the cocktails people come up with and then set to work on the write-up;) )
