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!

  1. I LOVE everything about this drink! Gorgeous color. Love the fruit blend. And love any excuse to make it feel like summer!!!!

  2. 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!)

  3. This is perfect for the warm weather we will be having from now on until Sept here in the desert ! And anywhere really – Thanks for sharing 🙂
