This refreshing pineapple daiquiri cocktail by food blog Salt and Wind adds an unexpected peppery element to the blended citrus drink with the addition of fresh arugula. The drink is a refreshing mix of piquant and fruity notes to create a beverage that offers a dimension of aromas at once.

Traditionally daiquiris are made using tropical fruits, rum and blended ice to make a slushy beverage that is ideal for the summer months. This version opts for a sweet and sour pineapple base that is blended in a food processor to eliminate the stringy texture of the fruit's flesh. Simple syrup, lime juice and arugula are muddled together and poured over rum along with the pineapple juice. Angostura bitters are then added to the top of the frothy beverage and drag for a garnish effect.
