The subtle sweetness of this pineappleade makes it a perfect cool-down drink. The recipe comes from "Lucinda's Authentic Jamaican Kitchen" (Wiley, 2006), by Lucinda Scala Quinn.

I'm making this for the second time right now. This drink is tasty and very refreshing. I don't think I'll ever buy another pineapple without using the skin for this purpose - it's tough to think I used to throw them out. Can anyone tell me what they call this drink in the Caribbean? It's so easy and yummy (though hard to wait 24 hrs for). Thanks!
