whole pineapple, peeled and cored, cut lengthwise into 1- to 1½ inch wide spears
Preheat the grill to medium. Spray the pineapple spears with nonstick vegetable oil spray and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Place the pineapple on the grill, and cook for 35 to 40 seconds and, with tongs, rotate (do not turn over) a quarter of a turn to create pretty grill marks. Cook for another 45 seconds, turn over and repeat to create grill marks on the other side. With tongs, transfer to a platter. Skewer and set aside.
In a pitcher, combine the pineapple juice, ginger liqueur, rum, and lime juice and stir well to blend. Add at least 2 cups (and up to 6 cups) of ice cubes, pour into glasses and garnish with the skewered pineapple, placing it inside the glass.
