A refreshing and tart drink, this twist on classic lemonade adds a whole new level of fruity and smoky flavors. It can be adapted easily to be made on your outdoor grill.
- 6 ounces fresh pineapple
- sliced 4 cups hot water
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (4 large lemons)
Heat a grill pan over medium-high. Add pineapple slices in a single layer, and cook 5 to 6 minutes on each side, until dark char marks appear. Set grilled pineapple slices aside to cool.
Combine 4 cups hot water and sugar in a large pitcher, and stir with a whisk until sugar is dissolved.
Process pineapple and lemon juice in a blender until relatively smooth.
Pour pineapple mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into pitcher with sugar mixture; discard solids. Stir well until fully blended. Serve over ice
