Pineapple is a favorite fruit for cocktails and is essential for a well stocked bar. You will often find it in tropical drinks in which it adds a feel of the islands and most of these cocktails are ideal for summer, though many are universal to all seasons. You may also be surprised how well it pairs with dark spirits like the rye whiskey of the classic Algonquin Cocktail.

Pineapple Juice and Fresh Pineapple Cocktails:

Pineapple juice is the most common form of using this fruit in cocktails, although chunks of pineapple are often added to blended cocktails.

One thing you will notice when shaking pineapple juice is that it tends to be frothier than other drinks. That is normal and the drink will settle soon after pouring it into the glass.

The pineapple ingredient is indicated for each recipe. Those with no notation use the fresh fruit.

Pineapple Infused Spirit Cocktails:

Below is a collection of cocktails that use pineapple-flavored liquors. The most common of these are infused vodkas and rums. On occasion, some may use a pineapple-flavored liqueur and some of these are a blend of tropical flavors, often mixed with coconut.

This collection of cocktail recipes is an ongoing project and is updated regularly.
