2-3Tablespoonswhite rum,Grand Marnier or Cointreau
½teaspoonlime or lemon zest
Red food coloring
Lime or lemon slice or peel(optional)
Mix rum & sugar in large bowl until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat. Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
On a small plate, large enough to dip your glass onto, spread sugar for rim evenly over surface.
Add 1-2 drops red food coloring, blending well. You can also use store-bought colored sugar.
Just prior to serving, take a lemon or lime wedge, and run it around the rim of martini glass. While rim is wet, place upside down into colored sugar to coat.
Carefully spoon in fruit cocktail mixture so as not to ruin your colored sugar rim. Garnish with a toothpick containing a slice of lime/lemon and a strawberry or top with a curled slice of lemon, lime or orange peel. You can also just add the garnishes to the rim of the glass.
You can also opt to serve in a carved out half pineapple. It tastes just as good, is a little easier and looks pretty as a picture.
