How long do frozen cocktails keep?

I love frozen cocktails because they can be made way ahead of time! Once you have blended the drink, pour it into a freezer container and it will keep well for up to a month!

Remove the drink form the freezer 10 minutes before serving and give it a stir before pouring into glasses.

Can you use frozen pineapple?

I prefer to use canned pineapple as I also add in the juices that it is packed in. If you use frozen, pour in a little pineapple juice when you blend it so that it’s not too thick.

Can you make this alcoholic

This cocktail is made with white rum. If you are not a drinker or want a mocktail version, it’s easy! Simply swap the rum for extra pineapple juice and you are good to go!
