One of my favourite treats at Disney is the classic Dole Whip – I have to have at least one every time we visit the parks, and rumour has it that spotting of a Dole Whip cocktail have been made at a few of the Disney resorts.
It’s still a couple months until our next scheduled trip, so I had to whip up my own version – and this Pineapple Whip Cocktail is definitely tiding me over until I can have the real thing!
(And I made a quick how-to video so you can see just how easy it is to whip these up!)
I first shared this Pineapple Rum Slush on my friend, Amanda’s blog, Amanda’s Cookin’.
We’ve made our own Pineapple Dole Whips at home before and the flavour is bang on, but it’s that perfect soft-serve texture that our DIY version lacks.
However, I have nothing to compare this Pineapple Whip Cocktail to so as far as I’m concerned – it’s perfection!
There is a generous amount of dark rum (Goslings is my favourite) in each cocktail, about 1/4 cup, but the drinking experience is smooth – almost dangerously so!
These Pineapple Cocktails almost taste like a pineapple slushy or smoothie, and you can play with the flavour or fruit combination as much as you’d like. I added a bit of coconut milk because I had it on hand, but almond milk, regular milk or even a fruit juice would in it’s place
Prepare yourself for a sweet, icy treat!
