Pineapple Ginger Mojito

My grandmother, a native of Philly, gives me her "Philadelphia" magazines when she is finished reading them. Each month, they feature a recipe created by a chef in one of their reknown Philly restaurants/clubs. This mojito is credited to mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim of the G Lounge. I have to admit that I have never been a big fan of mojitos; however, I was willing to give this a try. After making this yesterday, I am totally addicted. I am going to enjoy drinking these all summer. This is a bit of a pain to prepare and you have to wait four days for the pineapple and rum to fuse, but the result is well worth it. Prep time does not include the 4 days wait on the rum fusion. We used the 10 Cane rum, as the recipe suggested. Also, the recipe notes that you will need to choose a sweeter, gold pineapple and be sure to remove the core completely or your rum will have a bitter aftertaste. This recipe calls for quite a bit of ginger, so DH peeled it and put it in a food processor instead of dicing by hand.
