Why you’ll love this cocktail

If you like sweet and tropical drinks, then you’ll love this. Rum and pineapple juice and a classic combination, and fresh strawberries add a sweet twist. Topping your drink with a splash of club soda and some fresh frut is the perfect finish.

If you love fresh fruit in your drinks, be sure to try spiked strawberry shortcake and apple cider sangria too!

What you’ll need

club soda, sugar, pineapple juice, light rum, and whole strawberries on marble surface

For the Drink

  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup light or white rum
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup club soda

For Garnish

  • fresh pineapple chunks
  • fresh strawberries
  • fresh mint leaves

You’ll also need a drink pitcher and a food processor or blender (or a lot of patience to chop strawberries into little tiny pieces!)

Let’s make our drink

This, my friends, is easy! Once you chop the strawberries it’s a simple matter of mixing up stuff.

I like small bits of strawberry in my drink, so I just chop using the food processor. if you’d like it smooth, keep chopping until they are pureed, or use a blender.

Add the berries and sugar to a pitcher, stir them up, and set aside the strawberries to get juicy.

Add the pineapple juice and rum. If you’re serving right away, add the club soda. If you’re serving later, add the soda right beforehand so it doesn’t lose its carbonation.

Add fresh fruit and/ or mint for garnish!
