Pearl Harbor Cocktails

I have a delicious, tropical-type cocktail recipe for you:  Pearl Harbor Cocktails

Pearl Harbor #recipe
Here’s the thing >> I’m not at all ready to let go of summer.  So I’m going to continue feeding you some summery recipes until the Big Chill (otherwise known as “fall”) arrives.  It’s still quite warm around my part of the country, and I’m hoping it stays that way for a few more weeks, at least!

Pearl Harbor Cocktail #recipe

These summery cocktails will keep you in the mood for summer.  They’re so simple to assemble with just 3 ingredients.  I served them at a summer party and they were a big hit.  In fact, I ended up running out of supplies because they were being guzzled down like crazy.  There is something about pineapple juice in a drink that makes you want to drink one after the other (the sweetness of it, I guess?)  But be careful… these have vodka in them too!

Melon liqueur (Midori) is what makes these green.  Side note:  Waaaaayyyy back in college, I ate at a lot of Mexican food restaurants in San Diego.  My friends would always try to get me to drink margaritas, and I totally did not like them.  HOWEVER, some old boyfriend or something ordered me a Midori margarita one day, and I’ve been hooked ever since.  Midori is the only flavor of margarita that I enjoy.  Imagine that?  Anyway, so I’ll be making lots of Midori margaritas with my leftover Midori from making these delicious cocktails!

P.S.  I have no idea how this drink got its name, but it seems to be a very popular cocktail in which to utilize Midori.

Enjoy the final weeks of summer!

    It’s called a pearl harbour because it’s made with pineapples (popular in Hawaii) and midori (Japanese liqueur ). ?

    I can’t believe summer is almost over, and while I’m excited for fall, I’m sorry to see it end too! These cocktails would definitely keep those summer nights alive — they’re so pretty and Midori is delicious!

    This is a great addition to the cocktail recipe file. It’s always warm in my part of the world, so I may get loads of use out of this one…plus I love pineapple juice. I’m not as fond of vodka though, so I think I’ll substitute rum for more of an island flair.

    I love the color of these! I’m like you, margaritas aren’t my thing, I will definitely have to try Midori!

    I wish I didn’t like margaritas! I won’t tell you how much money I spend on Patron the last two weeks because I was on vacation 🙂 I also know I would love these Midori numbers of yours! Mmmm, they look so refreshing! Pinned!
