Pineapple drinks get kind of a bad rap & it’s just not fair. Howdy friends, Lauren here from LaurenKelp.com & today I am hoping to make the case for cool pineapple drinks. Can you imagine having a fun barbeque or backyard bash & serving your guests these Coconut Pineapple Cups? How fun!
1 large orange (for ¼ cup of freshly squeezed orange juice)
¼ cup of coconut rum
1 – 2 shots of dark rum
Cut off the top of your pineapple (about two inches from the top) and set aside. Cut a circle around the inside of your pineapple, leaving about half an inch between your circle and the outside of the pineapple. Use an ice cream scoop or a large spoon & scoop out the inside, setting aside the excess pineapple.
PROTIP:Depending on how ripe your pineapple is it can be difficult to scoop out. If it is a little tough, cut your circle into 6 slices to get some leverage for your scoops.
Blend about a half a cup of pineapple scoops until it’s a nice puree.
Add the ½ cup of pineapple puree, 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice, and rums into a cocktail shaker & shake for about 15-20 seconds.
Fill your pineapple cup with a handful of ice, strain cocktail shaker into pineapple cup, & garnish with some coconut flakes. 6.Serve, sip, repeat!
