"Dreams come true, In blue Hawaii " ~ Elvis Presley

Since it is 90 degrees here in the 'Couve I thought I would post one of my favorite summer recipes.

These are fantastic!

Hawaiian Pineapple Martinis
1-1/2 (750 mL) bottles Vodka (or 4-1/2 cups)
1/2 (750 mL) bottle Malibu Rum (1-1/2 cups)
1/4 bottle Vanilla Vodka (3/4 cup)
1 cup pineapple juice
1 pineapple cut into 1/2-inch thick wedges
1/4 cup sugar
If you have a big ice tea jar double the recipe. You can never have too much!

Layer the pineapple wedges into the jar. Pour in the remaining ingredients and allow the pineapples to marinate. The longer it sits the better it tastes. The last batch I made I let sit for 3 weeks before we had any and it was like juice!!

When I serve them I pour the booze into a glass and top with a little more pineapple juice. If you want to be fancy put a couple drops of blue food coloring. FAB!!

For an outstanding sangria recipe visit my best friend Jody's blog.

Two perfect cocktails for warm summer afternoons and evenings!

I am always of your recipes including pineapple after we made the fresh pinana coladas with pineapple chunks instead of crushed pineapple that party we had at my house on Vine...YIKES.

If this is one of your favorite recipes - JODY thanks for sharing with your partners in crime at!! This in my book could never replace WINE but on a hot summer day this will be in a pitcher on the table and I will toast to you both.

Thanks for sharing this great recipe
