Sweet Chilli

September 21st, 2020 Drink of the Week

pineapple drink with chilli

It seems like a random thing to do (dip a whole chilli into your glass) but this is actually an amazing drink! The chilli gives the drink a subtle kick which cuts through the sweetness of the pineapple. Yum yum. Highly recommended (especially for chilli lovers).


Pineapple juice
Soda water
Ice Cubes
One whole red chilli


Slice into the chilli and scrape out all the seeds
Put ice cubes and a decent splash of pineapple juice in the botton of your glass
Top up with soda water
Add the chilli
