There is just something pineapples that is so relaxing. It probably has to do with them be associated topical vacations. Although I haven't been one of those in a long awhile (too long), if I close my eyes while siping this drink, I'm transported to a white sand, crystal blue beach in the Maldives. If you need a vaca but can't get away, this the cocktail for you.

What You Need For This Recipe

  • Pineapple Juice
  • Lemon Juice
  • St. Germain or other elderflower liqueur 
  • Gin (I prefer Hendrick's)
  • Club Soda or Sparkling Water

How To Make A Pineapple Elderberry Gin Spritz?

  • Pineapple Juice: You can use fresh or store bought pineapple juice. Fresh is always best but if your strapped for time or need to make a large batch, store bought will work just fine. 
  • Lemon Juice: As with pineapple juice, I prefer fresh. But if you need to use bottled, use it.
  • Elderflower Liqueur: My favoriate brand of elderberry liqueur is St. Germain. There are other brands on the market but St. Germain is the standard in quality.
  • Gin: Hendrick's is hands down my favorite gin. The rose and cucumber notes really compliment this cocktail. But use whatever gin you like.
  • Club Soda: I have used club soda and sparkling water in this cocktail. Both can be used interchangeably as they are very closely related. Use which you have on hand or what's on sale.
