Pineapple-Ginger-Limeade Cooler

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 12 mins
Stand time 1 hr
Yield Makes about 12 cups
No need to peel the ginger--it will be strained out of the mixture before serving.


  • 1 (46-oz.) can unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh lime juice
  • 1 (3-inch) piece fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 2 cups light rum (optional)
  • Crushed ice

How to Make It

  1. Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 1 hour.

  2. Pour pineapple juice mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a large pitcher, discarding ginger. Stir in lime rind, and, if desired, rum. Serve over crushed ice.
