Roy's Hawaiian Martini
This recipe is perfect for when you want to serve a more sophisticated cocktail to a group of friends. While it does require that you marinate the pineapples in the liquor for at least 2 days, you'll find that it's well worth the wait. A large glass jar or even a big glass would work beautifully.
Yield: approximately 12 (4-ounce) servings
* 1-1/2 (750 mL) bottles Skyy Vodka (or 4-1/2 cups)
* 1/2 (750 mL) bottle Malibu Rum (1-1/2 cups)
* 1/4 bottle Stolichnaya Vanil (3/4 cup)
* 1 pineapple cut into 1/2-inch thick wedges
* 1/4 cup sugar
Layer the pineapple wedges into the jar. Pour in the remaining ingredients and allow the pineapples to marinate for at least two days. To serve, ladle approximately 4 ounces of the liquor into a stainless steel shaker half filled with ice. Shake 30 times, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a wedge of marinated pineapple and enjoy!
