Pineapple Coconut Cocktail

The perfect cocktail for summer: Pineapple Coconut Cocktail, mixed with Myers’s Dark Rum and a dash of cinnamon. Serve it in a pineapple to make it look amazing!

Pineapple Coconut Cocktail

Cocktails anyone? With the temperatures getting warmer I get cravings for exotic fruits all the time. This time instead of just munching it I decided to make a fancy cocktail. I used the Pineapple as a cup and mixed the remaining pineapple juice with Coconut Water, Coconut Milk, Myers’s Dark Rum and a dash of cinnamon – Yumm!

I’ve saved the green part of the pineapple to plant it again (it’s my second pineapple plant now). Yeay! I love exotic plants, even though I may never receive any fruits from the plants I just enjoy planting them as a project and watching them grow. I’ll put it right next to my 〜10 avocado plants and my mango plant.

I am literally the worst at taking photos of drinks, but I really wanted to have more of these recipes on the blog so I decided to try it with a pretty “glas” and what is more prettier than using fresh fruit to fill the drink in? I’m having young thai coconuts often at home and drinking out of the coconut feels like pure luxury but drinking out of a pineapple fruit, well, that takes it to the whole next level I guess. It’s so tropical and exotic, perfect for the lovely spring temperatures we are having here lately. I’m in such a mood for summer and I’m so looking forward to putting all my plants outside permanently so I want to reflect this feeling in the drinks I drink and the foods I eat.

This makes me want that first balmy summer night so bad! This looks absolutely delicious. And I totally get it, photographing drinks is my weakness too.

Oh yes! I totally hear you! It's super warm here throughout the days, but pretty cold at night so I'm looking forward to when it's lovely to sit outside in the evenings as well :) Photographing drinks is super hard, so I'm trying to get some practice.

Aww, Anu! It was my first time spooning out a pineapple to use it as a glass but it was so worth it! It's so fancy :D

Wow, home-grown pineapple? That is amazing! I'm sure it's very delicious too...not much of a pineapple person, but I'd give that a try. The cocktail looks delicious :)

Thank you June! My chance of getting real pineapples from a plant is super small because I'm not living in suitable climate zone for tropical plants but one can always try :)
