Row 34, an oyster bar and eatery in downtown Portsmouth, NH, created this delicious summer pineapple and rum cocktail inspired by Weekends with Yankee, a new 13-episode documentary series celebrating New England. On the third episode of the series, the hosts traveled along the coast of New Hampshire to celebrate local oysters with Row 34 star chef Jeremy Sewall, followed by a tasting of his delicious and authentic oyster stew (get the recipe here).

1/2 Fresh Lime Juice
Handful of mint
2 dashes Angostura bitters
