Summer is coming...

Last fall we received a postcard from the restaurant Roy's. There are a dew of them around, and this one came from our local Los Angeles outpost. It had their recipe for Roy's Classic Hawaiian Martini. And sure enough, we started to salivate over the idea of having one.

We went to the Roy's in Palm Desert last weekend and finally scored a Hawaiian martini and we got to thinking, "Hey, we've got this recipe and we could be drinking these all summer..." Off to the store we went.
Lining up the supplies.

Roy's Classic Hawaiian Martini:
1 ripe pineapple
2 cups vodka (they suggested Sky, we used Grey Goose, because we had a Costco sized bottle of that)
1 cup Malibu Coconut Rum
1 cup Stoli Vanil vodka
2 oz simple syrup
Slice the top and bottom off of a fresh pineapple, slice off the outer peel, cut pineapple flesh into 1 inch (or so) squares. Place in one gallon container.

Blend vodkas, Malibu rum, leftover pineapple juice and simple syrup together.

Pour alcohol mixture over cut up pineapple. Let stand at room temperature for at least FIVE DAYS.

When you are ready to serve, pour 4 ounces of the martini mixture into a shaker, shake, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with fresh sliced pineapple.

We were worried that the recipe says it only makes drinks for 6.
So we tripled the recipe.

Can't wait for summer to begin!

Thank God you tripled it, all the vodka in my luggage isn't leaving much room for clothes.
