Pineapple Upside Down Cake always reminds me of my mother because it was her favorite dessert. For some reason she always made it for Easter instead of the obligatory white coconut cake everyone else seemed to serve up as their traditional Easter dessert. Since I don't care for coconut cakes, I never had a problem with this.
Many, many years ago I made my first cocktail version of this with a simple combination of vanilla vodka and fresh pineapple juice. This year I decided to update the recipe a bit.
