Liquid Assets: TAPS' Pineapple Under the Sea

Ralph Palumbo

Mixologist Andrew Aoun at the TAPS in Irvine concocted a refreshing, aloha-inspired cocktail perfect for when the summer’s scorching sun leaves you parched. His Pineapple Under the Sea mixes Absolut Elyx vodka with fruity coconut rum, tart passion fruit juice and a squeeze of lime. For an added dash of mystique, Aoun finishes it with a spoon of St. George Absinthe. Since the heavyweight copper-gilded pineapple vessel in which TAPS serves this is massive, the imbiber might wonder: How do you best consume this drink? Aoun suggests you “hold the pineapple with two hands and drink it like the milk left at the end of a bowl of cereal.” Bottoms up!
