When we go to Paradise Cove, I’m always tempted to order the pineapple mojito because they serve it in a pineapple cup and it makes me feel as if I’m on a tropical vacation. This past week I had a lonely pineapple staring at me for a few days and I was inspired by the ones we sip by the beach at the Cove. So, similar to carving a pumpkin, I carved out the middle of the pineapple and pureed it in a blender leaving the shell for a cup. The carving part can be a little messy and you may or may not end up with some pineapple splashes on your face! I then whipped up a very refreshing, no sugar added (so it’s not too sweet), toasted coconut pineapple cocktail! I’m loving this cocktail and it’s a total crowd pleaser! Really, who doesn’t like drinking a coconut pineapple cocktail out of a pineapple cup?! I felt pretty relaxed sitting in my backyard sipping this… all I was missing was the sand. Try it!
