Vohn’s Vittles

victuals, vittles, food: my cooked-from-scratch recipes using natural ingredients

Pina colapple

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!

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!
