This refreshing pineapple drink is not just delicious; it’s also a great way to reduce food waste! While tepache can be made with the whole pineapple, using just the rind produces a flavorful beverage on its own. You can add anise, habanero, or any other delicious infusions to tepache, but I kept it simple with this version.


  1. Place pineapple, cinnamon, and sugar in a jar and fill with enough water to cover, about 1 gallon.
  2. Cover the jar with cheesecloth.
  3. Check after 24-36 hours and taste.  If desired, leave for another day or 2.
  4. Chill and enjoy!
