  • Pineapple ripe and fresh - 4 cups, cubed or 1 average size pineapple peeled, cored and cubed
  • Lime Juice - 1/3 cup. You may use lemon juice instead. Use fresh or bottled juice.
  • Water chilled - 6 cups
  • Sugar - 1/3 cup or to taste. i used organic coconut nectar. You may use agave nectar or honey or jaggery for that matter any un processed or less processed sweetner, if you want

Garnish 1 - some slices of lemon, lime, pineapple and orange. You can use all or any combination.

    Garnish 2 - a mix of salt and red chili powder


      • Take a good speed blender. Add cubed pineapple and 3 cups of water to it and blend it to a smooth puree.
      • Now pass this puree through a sieve into a larger container. This step will separate the fiber from the juice. While passing it through the sieve, press it hard to extract all the juice.
      • Now add the sugar, lime juice and remaining 3 cups of chilled water to the container.
      • Stir well till the sugar dissolves.
      • Take a pouring jug or decanter and add few slices of lime, lemon, orange and pineapple to it. Add pineppale juice to it.
      • Let it sit for 5 -10 minutes before serving.
      • You may also chill it more in the refrigerator.
      • When serving, pour into glasses, thread a party pick with slices of lime, lemon, orange and pineapple, and drop it in the glass. Pour juice over it. Add the stirrer and serve.
      • I added a pinch of salt and red chili powder in mine to jazz it up a bit more.
