Mint and tart lime muddled with big chunks of sweet, juicy pineapple and doused in rum — pineapple mojitos are so fruity and refreshing, they’re the perfect brunch cocktail. Think savory, like a pulled-pork hash, veggie frittata, or eggs Benedict.
Our tip: Use freshly cut pineapple (they grow year round, so they are always in season). Choose a pineapple with healthy looking, upright leaves and sniff the bottom of it — it should smell sweet and fruity. Store it on the counter, and then pop it in the fridge an hour or so before you cut it; cold pineapple just tastes better.

4 large pineapple chunks
