Last Hurrah

Seeing as how yesterday marked the first day of autumn, I thought I would say goodbye to summer with one last sort of summery drink for those of you who are like me, and still hanging on. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall! It’s actually my favorite of all the seasons, and this cocktail is the perfect bridge between the two. It’s got a summery, tropical base with a little surprise bite like a cool wind on an early fall evening. Intrigued?

Without further adieu, my Pineapple Rum Punch:



  • 2 oz rum (I used light but dark would work too)
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • Pineapple slices for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a glass with ice and stir. Garnish with a slice of pineapple, and enjoy!

BOOM. done.

The bonus? I got to use leftover ginger beer from my Mamie Taylor recipe a couple of weeks ago. Sure, I could always have made a Moscow Mule or something, but this is way more fun!
