Rim this tantalizing cocktail of rum, coconut and pineapple with black sugar for a sweetly spooky beverage that’ll be the hit of the land. Leave out the rum for a virgin “mocktail” all your little ghouls and goblins can enjoy.
Mix pineapple juice, rum, coconut flavor and food colors in measuring cup.
For each cocktail, pour 2 ounces pineapple juice mixture into beverage glass. Top with 4 ounces sparkling white wine.
How to Rim Glass with Black-Tinted Sugar: Place 2 tablespoons sugar in small resealable plastic bag. Add 10 drops McCormick® Black Food Color. Seal bag. Knead sugar until the color is evenly distributed. Pour out onto shallow plate. Dip rim of beverage glass in water, then into black-tinted sugar to lightly coat.
Test Kitchen Tips:
• Beverage may also be prepared in a pitcher. Mix pineapple juice, rum, coconut flavor and food colors in 2-quart pitcher. Add sparkling wine just before serving.
• For a nonalcoholic version, omit rum, increase pineapple juice to 1 1/2 cups and use 1 bottle (750 ml) sparkling white grape juice in place of the sparkling white wine.
