The Weekly Nightcap - Pineapple Orange Crush
today was a glorious spring day. the kind of day you can't help but love being alive. the kind of day that has everyone saying "if only it could stay like this all summer."
here on the east coast it was high 70's, clear, sunny, no humidity, and a light breeze. one of those "perfect" days. to celebrate this fabulous friday, i was looking for something cool and summery to drink tonight. turns out, i found it!
this pineapple orange slush is super refreshing and easy to make. of course, you could use any kind of orange liqueur in this but i chose patron citronge so it had just the slightest hint of a margarita feel to me. be sure to use fresh pineapple if possible as it will taste the best.
Pineapple Orange Crush
makes 2 drinks
4 oz orange liqueur
1 cup pineapple
1/4 cup pineapple juice (i used the juice collected from the pineapple)
1 cup ice
whirl up all ingredients in the blender until smooth. pour into two glasses and garnish with pineapple, if desired. enjoy!
