Preheat barbecue to high.

Oil the grill.

In a bowl, combine pineapple chunks with lime juice, Mayhaven, maple syrup, salt and hot pepper flakes.

Remove pineapple pieces and set aside the marinade. Thread the pineapple chunks onto skewers and grill for 3 minutes on each side, brushing with marinade a few times.

Place the grilled pineapple skewers on a serving platter.

Spice up the presentation with grated coconut and serve with coconut yoghurt.

Douceur Tropicale cocktail

To liven up the mood at the end of the evening, the experts at the SAQ suggest accompanying your pineapple dish with a signature cocktail.
Using Noroi Esprit-des-Caraïbes rum, a product proudly made in Quebec, this pineapple cocktail the perfect accompaniment to the dessert offered by Le St-Estèphe. Here are the ingredients needed to prepare the Douceur Tropicale.

  • 60 ml (2 oz) Noroi Esprit-des-Caraïbes amber rum
  • 45 ml (1½ oz) peach liqueur
  • 2½ oz (75 ml) pineapple juice
  • 60 ml (2 oz) orange juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Peach slices
  • Pineapple leaves

In a highball glass with a few ice cubes, pour all the liquid ingredients.

Stir with a mixing spoon.

Garnish with a peach slice and pineapple leaves.

If you prefer an alcohol-free version, non-alcoholic rum can be substituted or rum can simply be omitted. You’ll have a great dessert accompaniment that everyone will love!

Now it’s time to invite your friends and family to enjoy this fiery duo! We bet you’ll have the best summer evening ever!
