Fun Friday – Italian Breeze Cocktail


I have really been into Margaritas and Mojitos this summer but I have to tell you that this is a great refreshing summer drink.  A few weeks ago I saw that Trader Joe’s  had pineapple juice in the little cans.  I told Jim that I wanted to make a drink with pineapple so he came up with this recipe.  The Amaretto and the pineapple mix really well and  the cranberry balances everything out with a little tartness.  It’s a great drink – I really hope you will try it.

The only problem is that they do go down a bit too easy…..not that I had that issue:-)  Enjoy!

Italian Breeze Cocktail

1 ounce White Rum

1 ounce Amaretto (we used Disaronno)

1/2 ounce pineapple juice

1/2 ounce cranberry juice

Mix all ingredients over ice in a shaker and pour into a tumbler glass.  Garnish with a lime or pineapple wedge.

***Next week I am going to post some healthy recipes and some vegetarian recipes.  Have a great weekend everyone!****
