In 1850, the first shipment of ice arrived in Hawaii from Boston via San Francisco on September 14. Join us in commemorating
this oh-so festive occasion. A toast to Hawaiian cocktails!
Fresh Pineapple Mojito
Mojitos get an easy makeover with the addition of chopped pineapple. Fresh pineapple works best in this recipe, but you can
substitute frozen in case you’re dreaming of Hawaii in a pineapple-free stateside season.
Hawaii offers flavors from around the world, so bring a taste of South India to the islands. If you like pina coladas, this
nonalcoholic version, made with yogurt, is slightly thinner, but just as delicious. Our users suggest serving it as a breakfast
smoothie. Don’t mind if we do!
This cocktail takes its love of ice to the next level by snuggling up to the icemaker in the freezer for at least four hours
before serving. The result? A just-for-you slushie that’s sure to make any weekend at home feel like a tropical vacation.
Tiny umbrella not included.
Before you learn to hula, get your muddle on and mix these flavors to perfection. Muddling releases the natural, sweet juices
of the fruit, which pairs nicely with the fresh mint leaves. Serve this adults-only libation at your next luau. No luau on
the calendar? Time to get planning!
For your next book club or dinner gathering, swap the wine for a vacation-inducing pina colada and watch the fun begin. There’s
something about hearing the whir of a blender that officially kicks off a great party.
Three ingredients, plus a pitcher of ice, are all you need to enjoy this inspired tropical drink. Keep the ingredients on
hand for busy weeknights when you need to be whisked away to a white-sand beach. The good news? Mental vacations don’t require
packing or finding a dog sitter.
Though typically a welcome drink on any Caribbean island, we’re sure this drink would be welcome anywhere it may be served.
White rum plays nicely with pineapple juice and fresh lime and orange juices. The grated nutmeg is optional, but, believe
us, it is heavenly.
Perfect for your next neighborhood gathering, this non-alcoholic party punch has a pretty surprise: Mandarin orange segments
and crushed pineapple are frozen into the ice cubes, made with orange, pineapple, or cranberry juice. These same juices make
up the cocktail which means, as the ice melt, your drink won’t get watery.
Mai Tais join the cocktail menu by bringing orange liqueur, fresh lime juice, and a one-two punch: a combination of dark and
light rum. Pour a glass, garnish with fresh pineapple, and take yourself on an evening getaway on your own back porch.
While you’re on vacation, doesn’t it always seem easier to eat your fruit? We prefer ours sliced on a beach buffet or floating
in our glass. The fruit adds sweetness while soaking up the flavor of the red wine in this sangria, which gives a whole new
meaning to “fruit cocktail.”
