Coffee and pineapple? Yep, it's unexpected... but delicious. This caffeinated tiki-inspired mocktail offers an incredible balance of depth contributed by the cold brew coffee and orgeat and tropical brightness from the pineapple juice. You can find orgeat, a simple syrup made with almonds and orange flower or rose water, in specialty food stores or online. Keep your beverage especially cool (and full-flavored) by freezing your pineapple cubes before adding them to the drink.


  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup cold-brew coffee concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons orgeat (almond syrup)
  • 8 pineapple cubes
