Tepache anyone?

Even though it's winter and  cold outside, I've been craving this tropical iced drink. Tepache is a traditional Mexican fresca made by fermenting pineapple. The recipe and method is easy to do and the end result is a refreshing drink.

Ingredient List:
1 pineapple, 5-9 cloves, 1 cinnamon stick, 3/4 cups brown sugar, pitcher of water

  1. cut the rind off of the pineapple, set aside
  2. chop the pineapple flesh into small cubes 
  3. add all rind , half of the pineapple chunks, cinnamon stick, cloves and brown sugar to the pitcher
  4. fill the pitcher with fresh water and cover
  5. let the Tepache ferment for 48 hrs 
  6. strain into a glass filled with ice and enjoy
