Pineapple Margarita

Pineapple Margarita recipe

The Pineapple Margarita adds fresh pineapple juice to the usual Margarita recipe. I always expect pineapple to take over the flavor of a drink, but in this case the lime and orange give all that sweetness a nice, refreshing edge. And the agave flavor from the tequila adds some wonderful complexity. This recipe serves 8, […]

Cactus Bowl

Cactus Bowl Cocktail

The Cactus Bowl cocktail blends pineapple and lime juices with light rum, spiced rum and amaretto. The result is a flavor that’s tart, sweet, spicy and nutty. This is a pretty fascinating drink. You can sit there with each sip trying to figure out all the notes, or you can just enjoy the overall flavor […]

Monkey in a tree

Monkey In a Tree cocktail

The Monkey in a Tree is supposed to be a golden cocktail with a layer of green Midori floating on top, but it must depend on the brand of creme de banane you use, because my Modori sunk to the bottom like a rock. You can just barely see a thin line of green at […]

Windjammer

Windjammer cocktail

The Windjammer cocktail blends pineapple and orange with amaretto for a taste that’s mostly fruit but also a little bit almond. This is a very tasty drink that doesn’t need any acquired taste. This drink is not very strong, and that fact combined with the fruit juice makes it a great thing to take along […]

Evergreen

Evergreen

People love an amazingly green cocktail almost as much as they love the blue ones. The Evergreen cocktail certainly is pretty to look at. It gets its color from a combination of Midori and green creme de menthe, but along with the melon and mint flavors, it features white grapefruit and pineapple juices. The flavor […]

Mary Pickford cocktail

Peach colored cocktail in martini glass with pineapple wedge

The Mary Pickford cocktail is a stealth drink – it tastes so smooth and sweet, you may not realize it’s got a kick. It’s not an especially strong drink like the Zombie, but it gets the job done. Instead of your typical rum-pineapple-coconut flavors, the Mary Pickford adds cherry in place of the coconut. This […]

Limbo

Cloudy yellow cocktail in old-fashioned glass with pineapple wedge

The Limbo cocktail is simple, but it has a unique combination of flavors: pineapple and peach. This is a very mellow, fruity drink that goes down oh so smoothly. Enjoy a Limbo cocktail the next time you’re in the mood for something that’s sweet without any tang or sharp notes at all. This one’s great […]

Tropicana

Light greenish cocktail over ice in tall glass with pineapple wedge and cocktail umbrella

There are a number of  cocktails out there calling themselves the Tropicana, but this is the recipe that calls for a touch of creme de cacao. Oh, yes – this one is different from the others. The overall flavor here is fruity, but it definitely has that kind of flavor that you have to think […]

Foreplay Cocktail

Amber cocktail in shot glass

The Foreplay Cocktail is a very simple shooter cocktail featuring the flavors of almond and pineapple. It’s a sweet, rich, intoxicating combination. This is a very weak shot, since the only alcohol in it is a half ounce of liqueur. But sometimes a weak drink is just what you want – something you can toss […]
