Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

It’s time for a “Second Cocktail Saturday!”

So today I’ve got the first original cocktail in awhile. I have been working on a few recipes, but this one came to mind pretty quickly after grabbing a bottle of Parrot Bay Pineapple Rum (which is easily one of my new favorite ingredients). Additionally it features white cake vodka, which as any mixologist knows, is a tough ingredient to work into drinks.

My new drink the “Pineapple Upside-Down Cake” is modeled after the cake itself, and takes the aroma of pineapple juice. The drink starts with a glorious pineapple and pineapple rum taste. The smooth taste works down to a harder “cake” taste, but not overpowering on the cake side. Hard enough to make you think alcohol, but smooth enough to make you think dessert (without the use of cream).

Alcohol Rating: 4/10
