Prep Time Cook Time Serves
5m 2 cocktails

Not surprisingly, the pineapple juice in this cocktail makes it instantly refreshing. The addition of the cointreau adds a great hint of orange.


  • 3 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce cointreau
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 3 sprigs of fresh mint
  • 2 apple wedges for garnish, if desired


In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine all the ingredients except two sprigs of mint. With the lid securely fitted, shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Strain the liquid into two lowball glasses filled with ice. Serve with a sprig of mint in each cocktail.


For a mocktail version, fill a lowball glass with ice. Fill halfway with pineapple juice. Add apple juice until the glass is 3/4 full. Finish with a splash of sparkling water if desired. Garnish with a sprig of mint and an apple wedge.
