All you need is:
- Pineapple (preferably a little plastic container of large chunks; bite-sized pieces)
- Vanilla ice cream
- One shooter/airplane bottle of 99 Oranges
- Approx. 1 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar
- Skewers, tin foil, cooking spray, your stove top or grill and maybe a basting brush.
Skewer several bite-sized pineapple pieces, coat them well and toss them on. When they're most of the way through cooking, brush some more of the mixture onto them. Then get your ice cream and toppings - chocolate sauce, coconut, etc. - and push the fruit off the skewer on top of it. Serve immediately. Most of the alcohol in the 99 Oranges cooks off and leaves a rich orangey flavour behind. It's pretty great.
