Summer Cocktails: Blended Pineapple Mojito

There are a couple things I really enjoy about a vacation–having someone else do the cooking once in a while and summer cocktails. We spent this past week in the Florida Keys celebrating our 10th anniversary, and I got to enjoy both, someone else cooking and summer cocktails.

Granted, there are plenty of waterfront restaurants serving tropical cocktails, but personally, I would prefer to have mine in the pool.  And that’s exactly what I did.

Since our AirBnB had a blender, I experimented with a few different cocktail combinations and this one was an early favorite.

Blended Pineapple Mojito

Much like a normal mojito, I’ve used mint, lime, and rum, but unlike the traditional mojito, I’ve added fresh pineapple, blended the whole concoction, and added a little lemon-lime soda (I prefer 7up for this).

Summer Cocktails: Blended Pineapple Mojito


  • 2 c. fresh pineapple-chunked
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 1/4 c. fresh mint
  • 1/4 c. rum
  • 16 oz. glass of ice
  • 1 c. Lemon-Lime Soda (7up or Sprite)


  1. In a blender combine all ingredients EXCEPT soda and blend until all ice is completely crushed and pineapple has pureed.
  2. Add soda and pulse blender once or twice to combine.
  3. Pour into glasses and enjoy.
