Vohn’s Vittles

Pina colapple

on January 4, 2014

Hello dear reader,

This is a very quick little blog post to share with you my favourite non-alcoholic cocktail.

I invented this one a few years ago, as I love pineapple juice but wanted a “longer” drink.  I am not keen on soda or lemonade, so I tried topping it up with Diet Coke.

My family thought it was a crazy idea and there were many exclamations of “yeuchh”!

That is until they tasted it!
Then the exclamations were “wow, that really works” and “totally tropical taste”!

It is super-easy.  Simply pour 150ml pineapple juice into a pretty pint glass…

Then top up with 330ml chilled Diet Coke!

Enjoy!

Update: I am entering this into Chris’s Foodie World Cup bloggers challenge, as USA are playing today (16th June 2014) and that’s where Coke is from!

    I bet this IS good! Are you an angostura bitters fan?

      I love angostura Emma. My drink of choice for many years was a Long Vodka. I’d kind of forgotten about it – so thanks for the reminder! I must make one as a treat once I get through my healthy January! Vohn x

  3. I used to work in a bar when I was young, and a popular drink at ten time was a Muddy Puddle – Fresh Orange and Coke… Similar to this but not as tropical! Love the name – makes me want to add. A tequila and call it Pina Colappsle…

  4. Great idea. It’s nice to have alternatives to plain diet coke! I’m going to try this. Thanks
