TGIT! Let’s make some cocktails shall we? Blackberry Pineapple Smash Cocktails are on the agenda for today and I can promise that you’ll absolutely love them!

Last weekend Thomas and I were out on a double date when we happened across a cute little bar in Santa Monica that made the most excellent cocktails. I strayed from my go-to drink of a Moscow Mule and instead opted for this heavenly number. I’ve dubbed it the Blackberry Pineapple Smash and we’ve recreated it a few times since.

It’s a simple cocktail of muddled blackberries, clear rum, fresh lime juice, pineapple juice and a touch of mint. Done. Easy as that. Shake, shake, shake and then it’s done. It’s 100% my new go-to spring cocktail of choice. And if you need me this weekend, I’ll be sipping these poolside while trying desperately to work on my tan!

    Delish! .. but mine came out much darker purple from the blackberries.

  17. Helen

    We made these with one variation – we used pineapple soda instead of pineapple juice and club soda. I bet they were slightly sweeter than this recipe, but they were still really tasty! I wonder if this recipe would work well subbing strawberries instead of blackberries. (And yes, I realize that it’s not summer right now, but hey, a good cocktail is a good cocktail no matter what time of year!)

    Is it Rum or Tequila? In the write-up you say clear rum… in the recipe it’s tequila..

    • Alexandra

      This! I was wondering the same thing!

    • Gloria

      My comment is same as Gigi above. Is it Rum or Tequila that you use, or does it make no difference?
