Summer is here and you and your friends need to celebrate with this Pineapple Gin Cooler Cocktail!

Pineapple, gin, lime juice and your favorite sparkling water of choice…what could be more refreshing? Honestly, I can’t think of anything more refreshing than this little cocktail! The pineapple juice makes ya feel like you are in a tropical paradise, the sparkling water adds bubbles (which is always fun!) and the gin…the gin is perfection in this cocktail recipe.


Pineapple Gin Punch

I wish I could go back in time and tell my 21 year old self that I would develop a thing for gin in my early 30s. For a long period of time I thought gin tasted like one of those pine tree air fresheners. My head immediately went to that scene in Seven. Yeah… I was such a brat every time Casey tried to get me to try some. Sorry, honey.

If I liked gin sooner, I wouldn’t have had a whole decade of drinking Jack Daniels under my belt.

Jack Daniels might be the reason why I’m partially crazy. Which is a good thing because you are here now to witness it.

I made this Pineapple Gin Punch with my Mexican Popcorn. Wowzers! Mint, pineapple & lime with gin provides a delightful combination.

It is the opposite of Jack Daniels. It definitely wouldn’t dance on top of a table, shout talk at people about their astrological signs or get mad when their husband says it’s time to go home from a party.

It’s slightly feminine, a bit mature, unexpected and it might have a son named Cooper.

Why is this drink turning into 32 year old Tracy? I told you…I’m crazy.

Blend mint, 1 cup of pineapple juice & sugar together.

Pour the green stuff in a pitcher with the rest of the pineapple juice.

Toss the lime juice in with the minty pineapple mixture.

Fill up your cups with ice. Add a lime wedge in each one. Pour your juice over the ice.

Now put a shot of gin up in!

One for you, one for me…we can split the third one or let’s invite someone special over.

Pineapple Celery Gin and Tonic Cocktail : Sous Vide Infusion

An updated gin and tonic that uses sous vide rapid flavor infusion with gin. A blending of sweet pineapple and cooling, astringent celery.

It’s no secret we’ve been a fan of sous vide cooking for years now. While we create recipes for Anova on a very regular basis that focus on the benefits of sous vide as well as steam (for their new oven product), one of our favorite uses of sous vide? Rapid flavor infusion for alcohol. After all, we do have a drink cookbook.

Gin and tonics used to be my cocktail of choice. Sure, I still enjoy one or two during spring and summer since a gin and tonic are always best enjoyed outdoors. Over time I’ve moved away from how sweet gin and tonics are to more spirit-forward cocktails like our tomato vine vodka drink or rye. In 2021 post-pregnancy, I’ve started to appreciate more spritz-y cocktails again that use aperitifs (more specifically, bitter flavors). Go figure…bitter anything, even non-alcoholic, is something typically not safe for pregnancy. The ingredients of the compounds that create the bitter taste are a no-go for pregnancy (eg. gentian root).

While you can easily infuse alcohol without a sous vide precision cooker, it will take a few days. Sous vide infusion takes an hour. That’s why we’ve used sous vide rapid infusion to make our signature tomato vine vodka cocktail and our red pepper rum that we use to make a saffron paprika punch cocktail.

For this celery pineapple infusion of gin, we loved the flavor profile created by Lyan in the UK. We decided to add peppercorns to the infusion and then use it as the base for an updated G&T along with lemon and basil.

While you’re welcome to use any gin you like, we always recommend a non-premium gin. You’re infusing flavor into this gin, it doesn’t need to stand alone so save your money! We also recommend making sure the gin you do select for infusion is not juniper heavy since this can create a competing pine taste.


Though they may be the most well-known pineapple cocktail, you don’t have to like Pina Coladas – or getting caught in the rain – to add a tropical twist to your toast this National Cocktail Day. With a subtle tanginess and tons of flavor, pineapple is the perfect addition to many spirits and offers a delicious fruity base for both sweet and savory cocktails. So, whether you prefer rum, vodka, or gin, you can be sure you’ll find a drink you’ll be eager to celebrate with this March 24 th . Cheers!
