The pineapple holiday mocktail I'm posting today was made for my wife, Rachel. She loves coconut, and though she isn't as obsessed with pineapple as I am, she does like it! She's been sober for 8 years now so we don't have any alcohol in the house but sometimes it feels nice to sit down and have a “grown up” nonalcoholic drink. I love fruity drinks, so I made mine with pineapple juice (no coconut!) and lime sparkling soda (again, no coconut!).

0.5-ounce triple sec

How to make a Pineapple Holiday Mocktail
Muddle leaves of mint in a cocktail shaker (I love this one). Add triple sec, coconut lime sparkling soda, pineapple coconut juice, and ice.
Stir ingredients with a long-handled cocktail spoon.
Add grenadine to cocktail glass over ice.
Strain drink into the cocktail glass. I like these shatter-proof cocktail glasses.
Garnish with mint, lime, and a Maraschino cherry.
