Why You’ll Love This Pineapple Coconut Spritz

Pineapple and coconut are a match made in heaven! There’s something about those two flavors that instantly transports me to the tropics and makes me feel like a healthy fresh-fruit-eating queen. 

This pineapple coconut spritz is sweet-tart from the pineapple, while the coconut mellows it out a little bit so it’s not cloying. And I absolutely love adding some prosecco (or sparkling water!) to give it that refreshing bubbly feeling!

You can also make this drink in a large batch a couple of days ahead and then pour it over ice when your guests arrive to make your life easier. 

If you’re looking for more fruity spritz recipes, try the Passionfruit Spritz, Cherry Spritz, Frozen Strawberry Aperol Spritz, or Blood Orange Strawbery Spritz from our summer series! Each one is a delicious treat!

FAQs

Can I use fresh pineapple in this spritz? 

You sure can! I use fresh pineapple chunks for garnish/a snack in each spritz, but you can incorporate it in other ways as well. Try muddling it with the coconut white rum and then strain it into your drink for extra fresh flavor. 

How can I make a pineapple coconut spritz non-alcoholic? 

Swap your coconut rum for coconut water and use sparkling water in place of the prosecco. You’ll have a fruity and tropical non-alcoholic spritz that anyone can enjoy!

Can I use flavored simple syrup?

That would be delicious! Our strawberry simple syrup recipe will show you how to make a flavored version – maybe you could use pineapple! If you’re someone who wants all the sweet fruity flavor I highly recommend going this route.
