Pineapple Mint Smash

 

This one goes out to the pineapple lovers! It’s chunks of fresh pineapple muddled up with a little lemon, coconut sugar, vodka, and a handful of mint — and then topped off with club soda. The vodka is so mellow, it really lets the mint and pineapple shine, and then there’s a pleasant coconut finish. It tastes very fruity and refreshing, and yet not too juicy.

Which is to say that, even with all the pineapples and coconuts, it’s a light, sophisticated drink. Sipping it will make you feel like you’re on a fancy beach vacation even if you’re only on the patio. Bring out a floppy hat, magazine, and the radio to amplify that effect!

Our tip: This drink is so mild, it’s perfect for a summer brunch or a convivial and classy happy hour. Wanna get even more tropical with it? Try topping it off with LaCroix mango, coconut, or passion fruit.
