When the temperatures start rising into the 90s down here in Nashville, there is one thing that is a must – a fruity frozen beverage to beat the heat. Even if you’re sitting comfortably in the air conditioning, there is something so “vacation feeling” about sipping on a frozen concoction, right? Especially a pineapple drink.
So, who wants one? Coming right up!
There are just a few kitchen essentials you’ll need to become a pro at making pineapple cocktails or truly, any fabulous frozen summer drink.
Pineapple Cocktail Essentials
- You can’t make a fabulous frozen pineapple cocktail without a great blender! This is the blender I use personally, and I love it!
- Pineapple! I highly recommend using fresh pineapple, but canned or frozen will work during the off-season.
- Lime Juice (or lemon juice) – I keep both in my refrigerator as they’re great cocktail staples.
- Coconut Milk – it adds the perfect amount of creaminess to this drink!
- Rum, of course! You can use light or dark rum, both will be delicious with this drink.
