I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this but I thought you might want to plan for happy hour. If you love pineapple...and booze...and making a statement with your drinking vessels, this is the 3-ingredient cocktail for YOU!
How it works: Scoop out the insides of a pineapple. Whiz 'em up with rum, lime juice and ice in a blender. Pour that shit back into the pineapple—done! What do you think?
If pineapple isn't your jam, head over to the Good Housekeeping website to get my other next-level "fruit cup" cocktail recipes. Hint: One's served in a giant watermelon! If you're fancy, go ahead and garnish your drink with fresh mint and/or fruit. Here's a super-quick how-to video if you need some guidance (or just really want to listen to reggae). Now slip into your bikini and get sipping!
PINEAPPLE RUM PUNCH
SERVES: 2 to 4
1 small pineapple, bottom trimmed slightly so it sits flat
1/2 to 3/4 cup spiced rum
Juice of 1 lime
1. Slice off the top of the pineapple, about 1 inch from the leaves. Scoop the insides of the pineapple into a blender using an ice cream scoop to create a hollow pineapple cup; pour any juices into the blender.
2. To the blend, add the rum, lime juice and ice. Blend until smooth; pour back into the pineapple (or divide among cups).
Q: What other kinds of fruit would you like to see turned into an cocktail cup!? xo Erin
