Which fruit do you think of when it comes to sensational summertime drinks? One of the most popular has to be pineapple, which somehow manages to offer the perfect amount of sweetness without going over the top.
With the summer months coming up, we’re starting to daydream about sipping refreshing pineapple drinks while sitting outside beside the pool. Until the warmer weather arrives, we’ve found a few drink recipes that should add a little extra sunshine to your day.
This boozy pineapple whip recipe from Delish blends frozen pineapple, coconut rum, coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk into a creamy, dreamy drink that will make you swear you’re vacationing on a tropical beach.
Buzzfeed Tasty shared a whipped pineapple and Blue Curacao cocktail called The Swimming Pool that just screams summertime! Get out your blender to whip together some crushed ice, fresh pineapple, canned pineapple juice, a little bit of white rum and toasted coconut syrup.
Pour Blue Curacao in your cocktail glass before topping it with the frothy pineapple mixture, and voila! There’s a delicious swimming pool topped with sunshine in your glass.

🍹I’m going to show you how to use the parts of the pineapple 🍍 that you typically would throw away to make a delicious 😋 drink. One of my favorite things is getting deliciously creative in the kitchen. And when delicious and healthy meet, it’s like a one two punch 🥊. This drink 🍹 starts out my boiling pineapple 🍍 peel and the core…parts of the fruit you would typically discard. You then add spices and even some frozen fruit to make a refreshing beverage. Inside of pineapples 🍍 is a naturally occurring enzyme called Bromelain. The enzyme is highly anti-inflammatory and is used as a digestive aid as well as in congestion relief. When’s the last time that your drink did that? Your link to wellness is in the profile👆🏼. Cheers!🍹
Of course, if you’d prefer a booze-free whipped pineapple treat, there’s always Disney’s three-ingredient Dole Whip recipe that you can make at home. Cheers to summertime drinks all year round!
