Fill the pineapple with crushed ice, strain and pour. Add Ting.

The problem with honey mix is the milk solids that forms when the mix gets chilled. Make the honey mix with one part butter (if possible use clarified butter) and equal part sugar that you heat and mix together and then add some JW&N overproof rum.
You want a smooth creamy sauce.
Keep just above room temp when adding to the mixing glass. I sometimes shake and ignore the milk solids..when drunk from a pineapple you don`t see them..but the drink is fabulous!

Or use this honey mix (1:1 honey and water, heat but do not boil, then cool it and bottle it; will keep 2 weeks in fridge)
A Mai Tai a day.....Mai Tai roa ae!
