20g Maple Syrup
100ml The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve
100ml Pineapple Juice
1/2 small fresh Pineapple
Coconut & Chia Seed Yoghurt
600g Coconut Yoghurt
50g Chia Seeds
2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste
120g Tropical Granola
20g Mint, finely chopped

Method The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve Glaze
Combine all ingredients and bring up to the boil for one minute then remove from the heat and cover with a lid so that it stays hot.
Method Charred Pineapple
Cut the top and bottom off of the pineapple and then remove the skin. Cut into 2cm thick slices. Grill in a griddle pan until golden on both sides. Allow to cool and then cut into cubes. Be sure to not dice the core of the pineapple. Put the pineapple cubes into the hot whisky glaze and leave to marinade for 1 hour.
Method Coconut & Chia Seed Yogurt
Whisk together and set aside in the fridge for at least 1 hour
Method Tropical Granola
Combine all ingredients.
To Plate Up
Place some of the charred pineapple along with the glaze at the bottom of the glass. Top with the coconut and chia seed yoghurt. Garnish with the granola and fresh mint leaves.
If using a BBQ –grill the pineapple on the BBQ instead.
The Caribbean Fire
Made with our very own small batch hot sauce, this fiery cocktail packs summer vibes. A tropical take on a classic Bloody Mary, why not?
