A Pineapple Daiquiri blends sweet and sour with fresh pineapple to make the perfect cocktail. It’s a smooth and creamy summer delight.
Pineapple is such a tasty fruit and it’s perfect for making summer cocktails. It has such a great tropical flavor that just comes alive in your mouth. You’re going to love the pineapple in this delicious daiquiri.
A daiquiri is a classic rum cocktail that is made with rum, lime juice, and sugar. Adding the pineapple gives an extra boost of flavor. In this drink, we also blend the mixture with a bit of ice, for a blended drink, but putting the pineapple in the freezer helps cut down on the amount of ice you add.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Fresh pineapple – The best way to make this drink is with fresh pineapple.
- White rum – This cocktail uses white (or silver) rum, which is typically what you’ll use in a rum cocktail. However, you can mix things up and use a dark rum or a coconut rum instead, if you want.
- Lime juice
- Agave syrup – This is an excellent drink sweetener. It is sweeter than sugar with a more neutral flavor than honey and slightly thinner in consistency.
How to Make a Pineapple Daiquiri
The best way to make this drink is with fresh pineapple, instead of pineapple juice. In a pinch, you can substitute pineapple juice and ice but frozen fresh pineapple gives to much more flavor and texture.
You need about 2 oz fresh pineapple chunks, rum, the juice of one lime, and either simple syrup or agave syrup (my personal choice).
Put the ingredients into a blender and give it a good puree, so there are no chunks left. Then pour it into your cocktail glass.
I recommend the Ninja countertop blender. It’s a 1000-watt blender that can destroy ice with its 6 blades. It’s a professional grade blender for just around $80. Such a good investment, especially if you make a lot of frozen cocktails and smoothies.
Pineapple is one of our favorite fruits to make cocktails with. It mixes really well with rum to make many different types of drinks. Try this Pineapple Rum Runner, if you like this daiquiri.

How To Tell If Pineapple Is Ripe
A pineapple should be firm but slightly soft with a bit of give when squeezed. The more yellow the pineapple is on the outside the riper the fruit. If your pineapple isn’t quite ripe place it in a paper bag and fold the top closed. Set it on your counter top for a day or two. It should be ripe and ready to eat.

- 2.5 ounces fresh pineapple chunks, frozen

- Freeze the pineapple chunks for at least 2 hours, so they are fairly solid.
