SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

You don’t have to wait another week to get a taste of spring break. For a fruity cocktail fit for the beach — and the opportunity to try strawberry shortcake vodka — try this easy-to-make drink.

EXPERIENCE: Portion off equal parts coconut rum, pineapple juice, and strawberry shortcake vodka (Pinnacle makes a good one). Mix with ice in a cocktail shaker (or if you don’t have one, use my brother-in-law’s alternative: a protein drink shaker) and pour into shot glasses or a martini glass. The result is a pina-colada-type drink with a hint of strawberry — and a bit more kick.

ADVICE: Try blending the three ingredients with ice for a cool daiquiri, and throw in some cream of coconut and strawberries for extra flavor. Pour the mixture into the fanciest glass you own, and garnish with a slice of pineapple. Don’t forget the cocktail umbrella.
