Let the tropical flavors of this cocktail carry you away.
It’s time to take a vacation, and as the Beach Boys sing, “Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya…”
This pineapple, banana and coconut daiquiri is the perfect cocktail to indulge in on a hot summer day. Packed with the flavors of the Caribbean, it is an easy summer cocktail recipe.
It has been more than three years since my spouse and I have traveled anywhere for a vacation due to Covid-19, but that is all about to change. I recently booked a week-long vacation to Aruba, and we are super excited to experience an all-inclusive, stress-free vacation. We have never been to Aruba, but I would imagine that this cocktail is exactly what I will be drinking.
After booking our trip, I created this cocktail to celebrate the finalization of our reservations. I had already called my in-laws to make sure they would keep our son and was eager to surprise my spouse with the confirmation printout and this cocktail in hand. After much anticipation and discussion about finally booking a trip, it was a welcomed and tasty decision.
Most all-inclusive resorts offer a range of bold and bitter, to sweet and rich, to light and fresh cocktails. This vacation-inspired cocktail is a balance of sweet and rich. Fresh banana and pineapple with coconut milk adds a rich texture without giving it a sense of nauseating sweetness.
Endless summer vibes are just a cocktail away. I know you might rather be here on our happy little island, but if that’s not possible for you right now, a good tropical cocktail will instantly transport you to Aruba’s warm sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters in no time.
