  1. Preheat the oven to 160 C / Gas 2 1/2.
  2. Place ham in a roasting tin. Score the rind of the ham with a diamond pattern. Press a clove into the centre of each diamond. Drain the syrup from the pineapple into a medium bowl and stir in the dark brown soft sugar and lemon-lime drink. Coat the ham with this mixture. Arrange the pineapple slices over the outside of the ham. Place a cherry in the centre of each pineapple ring and secure with a cocktail stick.
  3. Bake uncovered for 4 to 5 hours, basting frequently with the juices, until the internal temperature of the ham is 72 degrees C. Be sure the meat thermometer is not touching the bone. Remove cocktail sticks before serving.
