Bebida de Piña / Pineapple Drink, 1991

Receta del Dia

González Martínez, Ana Ma. (Ana María). La receta del dia : una selección de las recetas de cocina transmitidas por Radio Metropoli [y] notisistema. México : Corporación Activa, 1991. [TX716 .M4 G669 1991].

I love pinapple, so I was really excited about this recipe, but although it was tasty, it was not very pineapple-y.  Even though it calls for just two cloves and cinnamon sticks, the spices are surprisingly strong.  In fact, it’s just like drinking apple pie!  So, if you’re in the mood for fall, but it’s too hot to bake, just whip up a batch of this instead.
