Pina Ginger Irie Drink Recipe
This delicious and refreshing drink recipe was inspired by travels in Jamaica and the legendary Bob Marley and Rastafarian culture. In Rastafarian vocabulary, the word 'Irie' refers to positive emotions or feelings, or anything that is good. Turn up the Bob Marley and sip on a Pina Ginger Irie Drink to transport yourself to Jamaica and see how the sweet vibrations begin to flow...
Prep Time: 6 Hours | Cook Time: 6 Hours
- 1 peel of fresh pineapple + 2 cups small chunks of pineapple
- 2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
- 3 cups boiling water
- 1 cup sugar
- crushed ice
Katrina's Inspiration"This drink was inspired by my travel experiences in Jamaica and the music of Bob Marley. While in Jamaica, I sipped pineapple drinks that were made from the skin of the pineapple. Not only does this sweet sipping nectar transport you to the tropics with its aroma and flavor, it utilizes a part of the fruit that is normally considered waste."
Directions1. Freeze chunks of pineapple in the freezer overnight to make "pineapple ice." You may want to lay them on a parchment lined baking sheet for a few hours in the freezer and then put them in a bag or airtight container so they do not freeze into one large chunk.
2. Place the pineapple skin and grated ginger in a large bowl. Stir the sugar into the boiling water and then pour it over the pineapple skin and ginger. Let it sit until the liquid reaches room temperature then cover it and place in the refrigerator.
3. The next day, strain the liquid and serve over crushed ice and your frozen pineapple ice.
