8 strawberries trimmed and quartered
8 pineapple chunks, fresh or canned
1/2 cup mint leaves plus more for garnishing
1 lime quartered
¼ cup simple syrup (recipe below)
8 oz pineapple juice
8 oz light rum
8-12 frozen strawberries
soda water, club soda or lemon-lime soda
Divide strawberries, pineapple chunks, mint leaves, and lime quarters evenly among four glasses. Gently muddle the fruit and mint leaves until all the juice has been released from the fruit. Add 1 tablespoon of simple syrup, 2 ounces of pineapple juice, and 2 ounce of rum to each glass. Stir together. (Optional: Strain the muddled fruit and leaves if you'd like.) Add 2 to 3 frozen strawberries to each glass and top with club soda. Garnish with fresh lime slices, strawberries slices, pineapple slices, and/or fresh mint sprigs.
Combine ½ cup sugar and ½ cup water in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar has completely dissolved. Let cool before using. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
