Homemade Pineapple Vodka Recipe

Homemade pineapple vodka is so easy to make and the pineapple flavor is so much more intense than any store bought pineapple vodka we have tried.  Perfect for summer time cocktails!

Comfort food season is almost over here in the north west.  Spring time is here and days are getting longer and warmer.  I have a new found appreciation for spring this year.  Im a summer girl all the way…  Give me 30 degrees, a pool and a pitcher of mojitos and Im good.

However, there’s something about spring that I noticed this year more than any other year.  I guess I realized why some people say spring is their favorite season.  Everything just comes to life and the promise of summer is in the air. Its hopeful, like the light at the end of the dark damp tunnel of winter.  The end of the dreary grey and rain.

Summer is right around the corner! Prime up your Margaritaville blenders people!


This thing is dabomb.com!  I can tell you from past experience that if you plan on having a party and want to serve some sort of slushy drink, this puppy is a necessity.  Debbie has a one pitcher blender that is perfect for making drinks for 4 – 6 people, but any more than that and you are going to spend a lot of prime sunshine time indoors making pitcher after pitcher.

Perfect for making pineapple vodka slushy drinks!

If I remember right, Debbie got hers from Margarittaville in Vegas.  But if you want to know where to get one of these contraptions, or any other of the awesome Margarittaville blenders (even a cordless one!),  here are the links you need:

Now that Ive got you all excited for summer, blender drinks and pool parties, the reality is that we have a little ways to go yet.  So this is the perfect time to get some Pineapple Vodka ready.  It takes about 2 – 4 weeks or so to get the full flavor of the pineapple infused in the vodka, so you should start some soon.

How to Make Pineapple Vodka

Its so easy to make.

  1. peel your pineapple
  2. cut it up into 1 inch chunks and put it in a large container with a lid
  3. add a bottle of vodka to the pineapple
  4. let it sit for a couple weeks up to a month

And that’s it.   Much cheaper and with more pineapple flavor than store bought.  Although I have to say, I love the ciroc pineapple vodka in a pinch!

Variations of Pineapple Vodka

You can change up this pineapple vodka recipe to suit your tastes. Here are some ideas:

  • add some sugar to make it more of a liqueur (this would be just like our raspberry vodka liqueur that is amazing)
  • add some mint
  • do a cranberry pineapple vodka
  • add mango!
  • add oranges or other citrus
  • add strawberries!

Or just leave it as is.  Or make a bunch of different kinds and try them all! So fun.

What to Mix with Pineapple Vodka

Pineapple is definitely one of my top 5 fruits.  I could eat one every day and never get sick of it so I am very excited about this pineapple vodka.  Im just starting to imagine all the drinks we will make with it.  Go for something like:

  • pineapple sangria
  • pineapple vodka and soda – for a light but so tasty drink
  • mix it with sprite for a slightly sweeter version
  • pineapple vodka punch with some citrus juice and sprite

It would also be really good in these drinks that are traditionally made with rum:

The pineapple itself will be excellent for punch too! Very potent though… so eat at your own risk 😉  Oh, or maybe put it in some hard core pineapple vodka sangria…

Just make sure to put this somewhere that no one is going to be tempted to start stealing the pineapple chunks out early and putting them in drinks!
