Thirsty Thursday: Ginger Pina Colada

So this may take a little more time to concoct, but it sounds like a winner in my book, as I’m a huge fan of pina coladas!  Okay, I’m game for anything with pineapples…

J.Crew Pineapple Pocket Linen Top (sold out, but I have this one and love it too)
Ginger Pina Coladas
Yield: 4 Servings

1 stalk lemongrass
3/4 cup peeled and sliced fresh ginger
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups pineapple juice, chilled
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup white rum, chilled
Pinch kosher salt
4 fresh mint sprigs or 4-inch pieces lemongrass, for garnish

With the back of a heavy chef’s knife, bruise the lemongrass stalk to expose the inside fibers and cut it into 1-inch lengths. Combine the lemongrass pieces, ginger, sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook a few minutes until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and steep for 20 minutes.
Strain the syrup into a bowl, discarding the solids. Place the bowl over a larger bowl filled with ice and whisk the syrup until it cools.
Combine the pineapple juice, coconut milk, rum and all of the cooled syrup in a blender and blend; it will make a nice frothy layer on top.
Pour into 4 tumblers with or without ice and garnish with the mint or lemongrass.
Cheers, Y’all!
