Bonefish Grill: Fresh Pineapple Martini
I'm not going to lie...I'm a girl that likes a little drink before her dinner. Especially after a long week at work. So when I ended up at Bonefish Grill one weekend, I selected this tropical number as my special evening drink. I can't even tell you how delicious the vanilla syrup is with the pineapple. And the elderflower liqueur adds this floral note. A really beautiful summer drink.

1 ounce Malibu rum
½ ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
½ ounce Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup
½ ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice

Drop two pineapple wedges into a pint glass. Add vanilla syrup; muddle well until all the pineapple is broken up. Pack with ice and add remaining ingredients.Shake vigorously twenty times and strain into a frozen martini glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge.
Makes one cocktail
Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
Bring the water and sugar to a boil over medium heat in a small sauce pan. Continue to cook at a rapid simmer until the mixture thickens a bit, around 6 to 7 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the vanilla bean paste and let it cool to room temperature. Pour the mixture into a glass jar or a bottle and refrigerate. The syrup will last for around 2 weeks.
