Pineapple Sparkling Island Cocktail or Mocktail

Sparkling Island cocktail is what to call this favorite drink of mine! This pineapple cocktail goes perfectly with any meal really, and easy to create with rum.

pineapple cocktail recipeThis sparkling Island cocktail is amazing!! Every once and a while when I want a drink with dinner, or when people come over, I make this…it’s so refreshing. Special thanks goes out to P.F. Chang’s Home Menu for sponsoring this post so we could share our creation with you. (originally published 11/16)

  • The other night we had a quiet evening together so I made this pineapple cocktail.

I don’t think there is a technical name for this drink, and quite frankly I don’t even remember the first time I had it, but it’s a sweet drink with just a splash of coconut rum that goes with just about any meal or appetizer.

So here’s how you too can recreate this easy meal duo.

If you haven’t noticed P.F. Chang’s Home Menu® meals and appetizers in your grocers freezer section they are there!! It is one of our favorite places to go on date night, so when we don’t have time to head out to their restaurant it’s a great way to have restaurant quality authenic Asian food. 😉

It seriously only took a whopping 10 minutes to create these Signature Pork Dumplings filled with ground pork, shredded cabbage, sliced scallions….they include a packet of their dipping sauce in the box too!

No matter what you pair with this coconut rum cocktail it is sure to be a hit for yourself or if you’re looking for a party drink to serve!

This is what you need to make our sparkling island cocktail recipe

  1. Glasses – I like these
  2. Coconut rum – Parrot Bay and Malibu are usually the types I buy (whichever is on sale)
  3. Lemon lime soda
  4. Pineapple juice – I buy these small cans so I can make 2 drinks out of each can
  5. Grenadine is a great add in
  6. If you like mint add a sprig on top

Not only is it super yummy and a sweet cocktail you can make but you could make it a mocktail for the kids too!

How to make this into a pineapple mocktail for kids and those who don’t consume alcohol.

  1. Leave out the rum
  2. BAM….that’s it!! LOL

Still super delicious and pretty with a cherry on the side of the glass like we did here.

For the cocktail you just need 3 things and it’s quick to put together (I’m all about easy recipes).

  • You can adjust the sweetness with a bit more pineapple juice here or there, and how much grenadine you add into each glass.

Once you’ve enjoyed this one you should try other summer cocktails like:
