Tequila Orange Glazed Grilled Pineapple

This was absolutely hedonistic, with ice cream on top of the warm pineapple and the orange sauce poured over the top.

1 large pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 1 inch slices (or canned)
1/2 cup tequila
6 tablespoons orange marmalade
3/4 cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix tequila, marmalade, sugar, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon together. Heat until sugar is dissolved. I had my butter at room temperature for a while beforehand, and with a whisk, this made a nice and creamy sauce.

Preheat grill to medium high heat  Place pineapple on grill. Baste with tequila mixture while grilling and turn occasionally.

Grill about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot, with a scoop of your favorite ice cream and a generous drizzle of the sauce on top.
