cocktail: tropical tiki-tini

September 24, 2014

tropical tiki-tini
For TAGG’s last post with Pinnacle, we’re excited to wrap up by sharing one last summer-themed recipe. My Florida, Texas and California friends can enjoy this in the heat for a little while longer but even when it gets chilly out, have a summer throw-back party with a cool take on what we think of a tropical party. You don’t have to go full-out with leis and grass skirts; go a little more modern by infusing the fun colors with cool pieces. While decor is not admittedly my thing, how pretty is this set-up from my super talented friend, Heather, the well-known party planner behind Posh Parties who just launched Posh Style to help people like me enhance events with everything from themes to details like tablescapes, linens and other details (ps: follow on Insta for loads of inspiration!).

Back to the cocktail and Pinnacle, as we’re wrapping up here I must confess how impressed I am by the brand. This recipe is nearly identical to our spiked arnold palmer, however selecting the Tropical Punch Vodka — compared to the citrus — really does create these impressive flavor combinations that I’d serve up to guests in a heartbeat. Pinnacle’s range of 40+ flavors are never overpowering, and in this case, add this light refreshing flavor to balance the tea.

So who’s with me? Ready to pretend it’s summer for a few more months? Check out the Tropical Tiki-Tini recipe below, or watch this fun video to see how to make it in under 30 seconds!

    Wish things were still feeling tropical around here, but maybe if I just had the right drink in my hand….
