Pinyaaas Queenladas

Brooklyn TexasComment

When our friends at W&P Design sent over this golden pineapple tumbler, we spent the first few minutes after unwrapping it dancing around and clapping (something about pineapples just make us so happy). Then we got to work trying to find the perfect cocktail to serve in it.

After researching a whole range of tiki drinks (so hot right now*), we realized we were sadly limited due to our lack of a real blender. We knew we wanted something pineapple forward, though, to emphasize our vessel’s main characteristic. Our best move was to create our own: the PINYAAAS QUEENLADA

It’s basically an alcoholic tropical milkshake complete with lots of heavy handed popular media references. Perfect! We found a handy pocket-sized bottle of light rum, a lime, a can of tropical fruit medley, and some real dairy coconut ice cream, which was surprisingly difficult, and mixed it all up to create our masterpiece. Did it taste good? Yaaas, gaga. Due to we started drinking before we wrote down the recipe a technical difficulty, this recipe is an approximation.


  • two shots of white rum
  • 6 pieces of canned pineapple 
  • 1 teaspoon of pineapple juice
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 2 scoops coconut ice cream

Blend ingredients together the best you can. Garnish with lime!

We love our Pineapple Co. Tumbler! Thanks W&P Design.
