Grilled Pineapple w/Tequila & Brown Sugar Glaze

I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day!  Grilling season is definitely upon us, so why not break out the beer tequila?  Several months ago, I went to Mexico City for work and brought my hubby back some good tequila.  It’s been sitting in our freezer, so I decided to break it out and make this delicious Grilled Pineapple w/Tequila & Brown Sugar Glaze.  This dish is simple, yet the flavors are amazing; the tequila and brown sugar combo truly tastes awesome. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream and this dish is perfect.  Enjoy!


  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large pineapple, peeled, cored, cut into wedges
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for topping
  1. Stir first 4 ingredients in small bowl until sugar dissolves.
  2. Prepare barbecue or grill pan over medium heat.  Grill pineapple until brown, basting with tequila mixture and turning occasionally, about 10 minutes total.
  3. Remove pineapple from grill and serve hot with ice cream or whipped cream.

  1. any recipe that starts with half a cup of tequila is a winner in my books! 😉

  2. This looks great! I do something a bit similar with pineapple but yours puts mine to shame

  3. This sounds delicious! The tequila would be perfect with the pineapple!

  4. out of all the fruits that can be grilled I think that pineapple is my favorite! Outside of that, you have really amped up the flavor here with these delicious ingredients. Sometimes a few well chosen ingredients can make all the difference-yum!

  5. I wish I was at your house right now.
