MID-WEEK MIXERS by Naomi Blackburn of The Pub and Grub Forum
My husband and I love Hawaii. I mean we really love Hawaii. Anytime we can head there or find some ways to celebrate this dynamic state…we are there.
I wanted to develop a mimosa that partners the two things that I live on when I head there. Pineapple and coconut is it. I found developing mimosas for Midweek Mixers a perfect opportunity to do this. So, here is another Naomi Blackburn Original…
Now, let's get started:
This is SO simple!
Really, really simple!
The Hawaiian Mimosa
1 can frozen pineapple juice, thawed
1 can coconut WATER (NOT MILK!)
Pink Moscato, WELL CHILLED!
1) In a container, combine the pineapple concentrate and coconut water. Stir to blend well. Then CHILL WELL! Mixture will need to be stirred. Chill flutes.
2) Pour two ounces of pineapple/coconut juice in chilled flute and top with Pink Moscato.
3) If desired, serve with pineapple wedge.
Fun! I live on Maui and will try this. Also, you should try one of my Hawaii mysteries, Stolen in Paradise is free 7/17 though 21! I was privileged to grow up here and love to write about all things Hawaii. My fave drink is my own Lilikoi Mai Tai, I grow lilikoi (passion fruit) by the wagonload!
