Highball Glass

Glass Guide- Highball Glass

A pineapple and coconut delight for hot days, the Chi-Chi is a wonderful tropical frozen cocktail that is something a little different than the average Margarita.

A reader is also looking for a Chi-Chi recipe that was popular in the 70's and 80's that involves freezing the main mix overnight and adding 7-Up. If you know this recipe, please share it with me: Email me.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail



  1. Pour all ingredients into a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a chilled margarita or highball glass.
  4. Garnish with the pineapple.

If the mix turns out too thick add juice; too thin add ice or ice cream.

Chi-Chi, Member dherpin

My 1983 American Professional Bartender's Guide calls for a vodka pina colada, but if this drink was ordered today, I would definately use coconut-flavored vodka, pineapple juice & cream frozen or over crushed ice. This recipe will only work with coconut-flavored vodka, if you use regular vodka you must use cream of coconut instead milk. I am researching who invented this drink, all drinks actually and I can not seem to find anything other than it was made in the 70's.
