Grilled Pineapple Lime Mocktail

Grilled Pineapple Lime Mocktail @themerrythought
Happy Monday!  I’m camping up in the mountains right now – so for me, it is a happy Monday! I spent the day yesterday swimming in the lake, soaking up sunshine and enjoying fresh mountain air!  (Lest you be too jealous, we also experienced one of the fiercest rain/thunderstorms I’ve ever lived through…while sleeping in a tent!  And we’re being woken up quite a few times throughout the night for bathroom trips for little boys…)
Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits and since summer season is in full swing, I thought I’d try out some grilled pineapple in a mocktail.  This drink is sweet and delicious!  Of course, you can always skip out on the grilled pineapple if you didn’t want to take the time for that and it would still be great, because, c’mon it’s pineapple…you can’t go wrong with that!

Blend together first 3 ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pour over glass filled with crushed ice. Add the sparkling orange juice and top off with club soda. Stir. Garnish with grilled pineapple slice.

For the grilled pineapple:

    Eddie Vandam - I have grilled a lot of things, but have never tried pineapple however.
    But looking at your pictures I guess that it will happen this weekend !!
    Since you are camping, what kind of grill did you use?
    Happy camping!!

      Manda - Hi Eddie- I made the drink at home, before I left for camping…so it was just grilled on a regular gas grill. You should definitely try grilling pineapple – it’s delicious!ReplyCancel
