Spiced pineapple juice is combined with a basic sugar syrup, naturally colored with pandan leaves.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • To Make the Basic Syrup: Place sugar, 1 cup water and pandan leaves in a deep saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove pandan leaves and strain the syrup. Allow to cool for use as a basic syrup. Store the syrup in a bottle in the refrigerator.
  • To Make the Cooler: In a blender or food processor, puree the pineapple chunks. Strain and reserve the juice.
