Drink of the Day: Pineapple Upside Down Cocktail

September 22, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

If you are into sweet, and like the classic Pineapple Upside Down Cake dessert, this is right up your alley.  No need for a fork for this tasty after-dinner treat!

Sorry for the delay with the Drink of the Day the last couple weeks.  The computer age is great!  That is, when these darn things are working.  Had a little bit of computer trouble.  Yes, I am running on the last generation computer.  But, until I find a pot of gold or something, this is the way it is.  Hopefully soon, I will invest in a new piece of equipment.  I will have to do with what I have for now.

I have changed up the original recipe.  I thought that it was way too sweet and too weak for my liking.  So, I added some vodka to give it a jolt and to tone down the sweetness somewhat.  I hope you like it.

Unless this thing breaks down on me again, expect daily blogs from me on cocktails.

Also, I have another addition to the site I will share with you later today that I would love to have some input on.

Enjoy your Tuesday and, just in case, have a great rest of your week.

Cheers!
