1 scoop of ice

Dehydrated pineapple, for garnishing
1 slice dark baking chocolate, for garnishing

NOTES

Top Tip: Using clear or clarified lime juice for your mocktail will give you a cleaner taste, a lighter and smoother texture, less bitterness, and your drink won’t cloud up when stirred. To make this at home, set a fine mesh strainer over a bowl, line the strainer with a coffee filter, and pour your lime juice over this, allowing it to filter through.
