Please note that this recipe is not AIP/Paleo. However, I’m looking forward to changing the recipe and making compliant soon.
I had party season on my mind when I came up with this cocktail. I made a single serving so that my husband could taste test for me. No whiskey for this preggo!
I was super excited as this is the first time I was able to use my mason jar cocktail shaker. It was given to us for our wedding and it works perfectly. I’ve had cocktail shakers in the past that leaked or just didn’t seal properly which makes them totally useless.
My husband definitely approved of this cocktail! Templeton Whiskey is relatively smooth so the alcohol doesn’t hit you in the face. It’s very tropical and light so it’s a nice drink for a variety of drinkers. I know that whiskey isn’t for everyone but I think most people would be surprised that whiskey is the alcohol used in this drink. Templeton is that good and the flavors perfectly matched.
If you’re hosting a party, you can easily make this for a crowd. You can make the large batch version in advance and just keep the mixture refrigerated to keep it cold. When you are ready to serve, just give it a stir and add the pineapple. The pineapple will act like ice cubes without watering down the drink. Plus people can eat the fresh pineapple like sangria. For a holiday party, I would probably serve it in a punch bowl but for a summer party it would be nice served in a pitcher or drink dispenser.
