THE PINEAPPLE ORANGE COLADA MARTINI
This martini gives an orange twist to a Pina Colada with citrus vodka and a little fresh orange juice. I've often made smoothies with pineapple, coconut and orange so this is basically a spirited tropical smoothie which means you can leave out the vodka for a non-alcoholic martini!
The Pina Colada is the official drink of Puerto Rico - the home of fabulous rums - so I feel a little guilty not having any rum in it but I didn't happen to have any on hand when I shook this martini up. If you want you can use a rum instead and it will impart a slightly sweeter taste as rums are made with the by-products of sugarcane such as molasses.
If this doesn't put the Vitamin C in your cocktail nothing will - serve it up with some of my Taste of the Islands Nachos and pretend you're enjoying the late evening breeze of a tropical wind.
