Dip martini glass rim in water and then in sugar.
Add pineapple to shaker and muddle. Spoon 1 teaspoon pineapple into martini glass.
Add vodka, pineapple juice, simple syrup, liquid smoke, and ice. Shake and strain into martini glass.
NOTE: Pineapple infused vodka may be substituted for pineapple vodka. Combine 1 cup frozen DOLE® Tropical Gold® Pineapple Chunks and 4 oz. vodka in a bowl. Cover and let stand 30 minutes.
Caramelized pineapple may be used for richer flavor. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pineapple to skillet and cook until caramelized and browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool before using.
TIP: Liquid smoke can be found at most grocery stores in the barbecue sauce section.
