SKYY Pineapple at Michael's Genuine

Pineapple is the new flavor du jour from SKYY Vodka, the American spirit company whose Infusions portfolio already includes Citrus, Cherry, Grape, Raspberry, and Passion Fruit. SKYY Infusions Pineapple Vodka is tabbed as "a lively, juicy tropical explosion of luscious" -- wait a second, is this describing vodka or a day at the beach for Father Cutié? -- "pineapple fruit notes with hints of complex Valencia orange and citrus peel, creating a fantastic finish layered with exotic sweetness."

The 70 proof spirit retails for $18.49 (750 ml) and $26.49 (1 liter). It tastes just fine on the rocks, and lends itself to cocktails that might ordinarily call for rum. The recipe below, plus those after the jump, are ideal for this time of year, when the sweltering heat is poised to pound us. If you don't feel like concocting a SKYY Pineapple cocktail yourself, head to Michael's Genuine in the Design District -- it's the only place in town we know of that is serving these drinks.
