"This is a play on a classic rum punch, and a variation on the Hotel Nacional from Havana, Cuba. For our version, I’m using a grilled-pineapple syrup — basically, simple syrup that’s been steeped with chopped grilled pineapple. It gives it a nice, smokey layer, but it would be just as tasty with regular pineapple. It’s a great drink for spring or summer.” —Bryan Schneider, The Monkey Bar, New York City
