A Pineapple Cocktail

It is time. 

Time for what, you ask?

 A Pineapple Martini for Cocktail Time

Time, my friends, for us to mix a delectable concoction with the pineapple infused vodka I made a week ago.  First we must prepare our cocktail glasses.  First, select the glasses you will use.  I have some lovely glasses from Williams Sonoma that I absolutely love.

Love, I tell you, L-O-V-E.  They are not inexpensive, friends, but using these special cocktail glasses makes your drinks just that much more delectable.  These are $20 each, so you probably won't want enough on hand for a cocktail party, but having two makes sharing a cocktail with your honey a little more...

Add Sugared Rims to the Martini Glasses
Now, back to preparing the glasses.  I really like sugared rims on my cocktails.  I know, it's very girly of me, but what can I say?  I like it, OK?  So, let's take some turbinado sugar (you can get it in the grocery store) and mix a bit with one teaspoon (more or less) of grated orange zest on a flat plate.


Take a wedge of a lime and run it around the edge of your glass.  Your really want to get some juice on there to make the sugar mixture stick.  Then roll the edge of your glass in the sugar mixture.  Set the glass aside while you mix your drink.  You can prepare glasses early in the day, if you are thinking ahead.

Now let's move on to making this yummy Pineapple Martini.

Pineapple Cocktail Ingredients

Donna's Pineapple Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1-ounce pineapple infused vodka
  • 1-ounce orange liqueur, recommended: Cointreau
  • 1/2-ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Turbinado sugar, for the rim (optional)
  • Fresh wedges of pineapple
  • Maraschino cherries, for garnish


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.

Fill the Shaker with Ice

Add the pineapple juice, vodka, orange liqueur, and lime juice. Cover the shaker and shake vigorously, until the ingredients are combined and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, by the time the shaker fogs up the drink is ready.)

Strain the drink into the chilled glass. Skewer the pineapple and cherry and drop them into the cocktail.   Don't forget your pretty cocktail napkins.  Cheers.
