Raise your hands if you’ve already dusted off the grill and started off the Barbeque season! If you’ve done so, good for you! Well, I have to say, I am a little bit behind on starting the grill this year. Maybe because it’s already too hot out there even without the grill? Or, I just haven’t get the inspiration on new BBQ recipes to try, just yet. Are you the same like me, who needs a little motivation, or a kick at the back? Guess what, I guess this Pineapple Gin Fizz will help. It’s super refreshing and it is such a fun drink to enjoy while you man the grill.
This Pineapple Gin Fizz is both sweet and slightly tart at the same time. I love the tropical flavor of pineapple and orange in this drink. The little carbonated bubbly makes it extra refreshing. Perfect for the hot summer days, especially when you’re firing up the grill. Hm….I guess I’ll be grilling some pineapple slices to make Hawaiian Hamburgers to kick off the BBQ season along with this Pineapple Gin Fizz! Want to see how I made this cocktail?

Pineapple Gin Fizz:
1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus lemon twists, for garnish
6 ounces gin
2 ounces orange liqueur, I used Grand Marnier
A pinch of freshly grated black pepper
Champagne or sparkling wine, chilled, for serving
Fill a pitcher with ice, and combine the pineapple juice, lemon juice, gin, orange liqueur and pepper. Give it a quick stir and pour into ice-filled highball glasses, top with champagne and garnish each with a lemon twist.
