Here's a fresh 'n fruity frozen cocktail (for duos of the legal drinking age). So decadent, it could double as dessert!
10 mint leaves
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia), or more to taste
2 limes, quartered, for a total of 8 wedges
One 8-oz. can crushed pineapple in juice (not drained)
3 oz. (6 tbsp.) rum
2 cups crushed ice or 10 - 16 ice cubes
Evenly distribute mint, sweetener, and half of the lime wedges between 2 glasses (2 lime wedges per glass).
Squeeze the juice from the remaining lime wedges into the glasses, 2 wedges each; then discard these wedges.
Muddle (a.k.a. mash) the contents of each glass. Set aside.
To a blender, add the (undrained) pineapple, rum, and ice. Blend at high speed until smooth.
Evenly distribute contents of the blender between the 2 glasses with the muddled mixture. Stir well.
If you like, add additional sweetener to taste. Drink up and be refreshed!
