When you’re making a new cocktail or an old favorite that calls for pineapple rum, skip the store-bought version and make your own. The flavor will be so much better, and this recipe is easy as one-two-three!

Homemade Pineapple Rum:

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been infusing alcohol for years. I love a fruit- or herb-flavored liquor but often find that the ones available at the liquor store miss the mark. The flavor seems a bit manufactured or fake. (Spoiler alert: It probably is.)

While you certainly can’t recreate every flavored liquor at home, there are several varieties that you can, and this Homemade Pineapple Rum is one of them.

As I said at the beginning of this post, the process is super simple, but it does take a little time.

Simply add freshly cut pineapple chunks to a jar, top it with a good white rum, and then let it soak for 1-2 weeks.

Tips for making Homemade Pineapple Rum:

Use the best ingredients. Be sure to use a flavorful pineapple and a rum you enjoy on its own. The result of the infusion will only taste as good as the ingredients used.

Allow the rum and pineapple to sit for at least a week. For the best flavor, I recommend two weeks.

    Since I keep my regular vodka in the freezer, can I do this with the infused pineapple vodka without the pineapple?

      Hi Phyllis – I’m not quite sure what you’re asking here. Can you clarify? Thanks!

    Hey there. This will be my first time making homemade liquor. Unfortunately I can’t drink anymore, but I want to send 2 16oz masons with different liquors to my aunt and uncle on the west coast. I’m not sure just what they prefer to drink, but I do know a little. So this is my plan. One with 3/4 rum 1/4 everclear, pineapple, coconut, and caramel. One with same alcohol ratio as above, frozen cherries, red hots, and a dash of vanilla. Ok… Call me crazy. If you’ve done anything like this before, about how many red hots and shredded sweet coconut or coconut extract (if it exists)? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Michael,
    Could you do the same to make coconut rum?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Sure! I don’t see why not. Enjoy!

    Would you let it soak out on the counter or in the fridge, or does it really not matter? I’m fairly new to making my own drinks at home And I’m so excited to try this one!

  • Rick at

    Can you eat the pineapple after the two weeks? 🙂

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      You sure can! Or use it to make / garnish a cocktail. 🙂

    Should I soak the pineapple in the fridge or leave on the counter?

  • Jane at

    This sounds delicious. But, help me out here. Do you have any drink recipes to use with this flavored rum? I’m not much of a drinker (but, I want to be now) so I’m a little inexperienced in knowing what ratios of mixers to add to this rum.

      • Jane at

        Thanks so much. You’re the best!!

      It’s good on the rocks as a sipping rum.

    I love the picture of you and you’re mother! Thank you for the wonderful peach cobbler recipe and making them in the mini loaf pans. That’s very clever and a great idea. I have used mini pie plates before but there is something different about the loaf pans. Best regards for positive results in whats going on in your life right now,.

    Hi Michael –
    My all- time favorite is Sangria, but I made some homemade Limoncello with meyer lemons from my tree and some vodka, its pretty easy but your right, it sure tastes better than store bought. PIneapple Rum sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing the process.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Oooh! That’s such a good idea. I should try that! Thanks!
