Ingredients:

1 large ripe pineapple
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup freshly-squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 recipe watermelon granita -- see * note
 

Preparation / Directions:

* Note: See the "Watermelon Granita" recipe which is included in this collection. Soak 1 dozen small bamboo skewers in cold water. Cut off top and bottom poles of pineapple. Stand it upright on the cutting board and cut off rind, using a sharp knife and smooth downward motions. Remove any remaining eyes with the tip of a paring knife. Cut in quarters lengthwise and cut out and discard woody core. Cut flesh into 1- or 1 1/2-inch chunks. In a medium bowl, combine tequila, lime juice and sugar. Add pineapple chunks and toss to coat. Let marinate 30 minutes at room temperature. Preheat grill to medium-high. Drain pineapple chunks and divide among skewers. Brush grill well, wipe with oiled paper towel and place skewers on grill at an angle. Cook a total of 6 to 8 minutes, turning frequently, until outside is lightly caramelized. Remove from grill, let cool slightly and serve 2 skewers in each bowl of Watermelon Granita.
