Sweet and Tart Pineapple Mixer

MADE BY POK POK IN PORTLAND, OREGON

MOUTH SAYS...

This incredibly fruity, not-too-sweet syrup has a secret ingredient: vinegar! Drinking vinegar might seem like a really, really bad idea, but unlike the stuff you use to dress your salad (or clean your floor), this style harkens back to a traditional American beverage made by preserving fruit in vinegar and sugar.

At the Pok Pok restaurants in Portland and New York City, chef Andy Ricker makes amazing versions with a vaguely tropical bent that he's been kind enough to share with the wider public.

Lovers of fresh pineapple will adore this incarnation of their favorite island treat, which already has quite a lot of zingy notes and tropical sweetness. The ultimate tiki-drink addition. 

Mix it with seltzer and it's the best pineapple soda you've ever tasted. Not too sweet, not too tart, once you've tried it, you'll be as crazy for drinking vinegar as we are.

Tip of The Tongue

The concentrate is meant to be diluted, so one bottle goes a long way. An awesome gift for pregnant or otherwise teetotaling friends and loved ones.

  • $18 for a 16 oz bottle
