Pineapple Daiquiri

My Gainesville and Washington friend Linda T. made this for me once when she had over some other guests for dinner. It's good, but if you use fresh pineapple, it must be very ripe, or you'll have "high-fiber" beverages.

  • 1/2 can pineapple
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1/3 cup crushed ice

Put the pineapple in the blender first, and run it until the fruit is puréed. Then open it and add the non-pineapple ingredients, and run it again for a minute or so until foamy. Finally add the crushed ice and run for about 10 seconds. You don't want the ice to be too finely processed or it may melt right away and yield a watery daiquiri.
