Grilled Pineapple Lemonade | Food

A refreshing and tart drink, this twist on classic lemonade adds a whole new level of fruity and smoky flavors. It can be adapted easily to be made on your outdoor grill. We found that cooking the pineapple over charcoal lent an extra smoky depth that mezcal fans will appreciate. It can be customized to your preference when it comes to sweetness, or feel free to add a boozy spin with a dash of silver rum or tequila. Enjoy this fruit-forward lemonade on a warm spring day accompanied by your favorite cookout bites. For aesthetic flair, add a chunk of pineapple or a slice of lemon to the rim of your glass.
