Sunshine in a Glass: Pineapple Martini

This Pineapple Martini is a sweet and refreshing tropical island inspired martini and it’s so festive, it’s like sunshine in a glass.

Pineapple Martini

The oppressive heat these last few weeks of August has me dreaming of Hawaii. When I think of Hawaii, I start thinking of pineapples. And when I think of pineapples, I then start thinking of cocktails with pineapple in them.

On a whim last week, I bought some coconut liqueur. I wasn’t quite sure what I would use it for, but I bought it knowing I would use it in something. On the same shopping trip, I also bought some whipped cream flavored vodka for a fall cocktail that I am still trying to perfect.

So inspiration struck, and this gorgeous cocktail is the result.

May I present to you my version of a Pineapple Martini! All I can say is wow. It’s sunshine in a glass and the perfect cocktail to round out my Summer Cocktail Series.
