1 tsp

finely grated lime zest

120 ml

fresh lime juice

120 ml

light rum (optional)

320 g

roughly chopped fresh ripe pineapple

2 to 3

fresh pitted dates, plus more to taste

1 tsp

minced ginger, plus more to taste

30 g

firmly packed mint leaves, plus more to serve

480 ml

sparkling water, to serve

Step by step

  1. Throw the lime zest, lime juice, rum (if using), pineapple, dates, and ginger into your KitchenAid® Power Plus® blender container, secure the lid, and blast on high for about 30 seconds until the dates are completely pulverized.

  2. Add dates and ginger to taste, and pulverize again, if adding extra.

  3. Add the mint leaves, secure the lid, and pulse for 5 to 10 seconds on variable speed 4 until the mint is rustically broken up into small pieces but not completely pulverized.

  4. Fill four glasses with 1 cup of ice cubes each, and pour equal parts of the blended mixture into each of the glasses.

  5. Top with sparkling water, and garnish with mint leaves. Enjoy immediately.

  6. Depending on the sweetness of the pineapple and the tartness of the limes you juice, more dates may be required.
