June 27 is International Pineapple Day.

On this day, pineapple lovers across the globe pay homage to this delicious tropical fruit. Whether you’re eating a freshly cut slice, baking a pineapple upside-down cake or eating slice of Hawaiian pizza (don’t worry, we don’t judge), there are many different ways to celebrate the fruit. For us though, nothing quite works the charm than a refreshing alcoholic beverage, which Plantation Rum has thoughtfully provided some recipes to.

Fittingly, the rum maker has chosen International Pineapple Day to showcase its new limited edition Plantation Rum Stiggins’ Fancy Smoky Formula. The smoky rum infused with Victoria Pineapple, Citrus Peel and a touch of Clove and Dry Peat serves as the perfect base for some delicious cocktails. Matured in ex-peated Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey Casks, it offers the perfect marriage of sweetness and smokiness.

With its rich and delicious pineapple bouquet, accented by smoky clove notes, Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple is the perfect companion for all Pineapple and/or Rum lovers. If you are feeling adventurous and want to brave the world of mixology, have a try at shaking up your spirits for International Pineapple Day with these two cocktails below:
