Good pineapple liqueurs are a fairly recent development as the enzymes in the fruit make infusing fresh pineapples in alcohol to produce a stable and tasty liqueur tricky. However, a small number of producers have forgone using "natural" flavourings that taste like pineapple in place of pineapple itself and risen to the challenge. Let's celebrate their achievement with pineapple liqueur cocktails.
