I bought one of these at a garage sale last weekend and I'm itching to try it out



I've searched the internet (including TC) and I can't find a Pi-Yi recipe no matter how I spell it. Does anyone have a recipe they can share?

The Pi-Yi recipe is in "Intoxica!"

Those pineapple corers are awesome. Mine has attachments for three different sizes.

If my memory serves, there's a Don the Beachcomber postcard that lists three cocktails, including the Pi-Yi. It's more of a listing of ingredients rather than an actual recipe, but as I recall the drink calls for Cuban rums.

The Pina Passion is pretty close to the Pi-Yi. This is one of my faves when I've got some fresh pineapple around.

Not completely off the subject does anyone know where to purchase those pineapple hollow outers?

I thought I had seen a metal one at some point but I can't find my link.

Btw that recipe sounds tasty!

leleliz, you can find them at stores that sell cookware, such as Sur La Table or Williams Sonoma. I got mine at Target, and I've seen them at a larger few grocery stores including Kroger's (which is the same chain as Ralph's for you West Coasters).

Have fun, those pineapple jobbies work exceptionally well.
If you do it right, you end up with a vessel to serve your cocktail in.
Post pics!

Thanks for the recipes. I'm going to try out the Pina Passion tomorrow because I have most of the ingredients. I'll post pictures.

As promised, Pina Passion pictures:




Ingredients. ALCB does not list peach brandy so I substituted apricot brandy and it was fine.




Erin.




The pineapples were perfectly ripe - sweet, juicy and very easy to hollow out.







Jessica.







The intact core served as an "umbrella stand"

Recipe from the former Sea Shell restaurant of the former Coco Palms Resort, Kauai:

1 oz rum
1 oz orange curacao
1 oz 151 rum
1 oz orange juice
3 oz Itch mix
1 oz coconut syrup
2 oz crushed pineapple

Blend. Garnish with straw and orchid. Serve in pineapple. Price code=Piyi.

Taken directly from the recipe cards.

Yet to try it. Just got it. Rescued all of the recipe cards I could find on this last trip. Enjoy.
