{cheers...with a pineapple flirtini}

I came across this drink the other day and thought it would be a good idea to share it with all of you. I am a wine girl but it's good to spice things up, from time to time, with a good cocktail. This Pineapple Flirtini looks so yummy and refreshing! 
Here in Miami summer has arrived earlier as usual so I can't wait to drink this "martini with a twist" by the pool. Also, I know what I'm ordering tonight! We are celebrating a friend's birthday at a very popular Irish Pub...and I don't like beer :-)
It's Friday! Do we need a better excuse to try it?!? Enjoy it!

Pineapple Flirtini
Ingredients for 1 serving:
1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. Cointreau or Triple Sec Liqueur
1 oz. pineapple juice
2 pieces of fresh pineapple
3 oz. champagne
1. Muddle the pineapple pieces and the Cointreau in the bottom of a mixing glass.
2. Add vodka and juice and stir with ice.
3. Strain into a chilled Martini glass.
4. Top with Champagne.
5. Garnish with a cherry.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend my sweet friends! Cheers!!!


  1. YUUMM!!! I love pineapple and this sounds delicious. I don't usually like vodka but I think pineapple will make all the difference. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  2. Could you send some of that warm Miami weather to "sunny" (?!?) California? We are freezing, and it is supposed to be spring, our warmest season. (Summer is always cold - Mark Twain said that the coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.)

  3. Oooohhh!!! I'm always looking for new fun poolside drinks. This sounds fantastic!

  4. A refreshing and juicy drink for the summer,I like it!

  5. This sounds like just the perfect drink it is making me dream of Maui in a chic (non-hula skirt) way. Your blog is beautiful...and I see you hang out with Trish on Thursday! Saw you linked up to Tickled Pink and came to say hi and thanks for linking. I am a new follower.

  6. This sounds absolutely fabulous, can not wait to try it!
    So summer friendly, may even do this at my SATC2 pre party!
