A great no-bake dessert! Grill it outdoors or use a cast iron pan to create great grill flavor from the indoors. No matter how you grill it, sweet bourbon-soaked pineapple, buttery angel food cake and mounds of vanilla ice cream simply scream summer.

- 1/2 cup ginger ale or bourbon (optional)
- 1 angel food cake loaf, sliced
- 1/2 stick butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar

With a PROfreshionals Pineapple Slicer, peel core and slice pineapple. Place pineapple slices in a resealable plastic container, drizzle with bourbon or ginger ale. Marinate for at least 1 hour, and up to overnight.
