Pineapple Upside Down Cake Daiquiri

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet…just like this daquiri!

This drank is sure to please all of the wussies in your gang who can’t handle Grand Marnier shots, dark beer, and/or grown up booze.

In reality though, I bet all of the dudes reading this post are secretly bookmarking this page so they can make it late on a Tuesday night when they are sure no one else is around.

Shoot, I bet the hubs is going to ask me to make him one tonight 😉

I don’t think I have ever had a piece of pineapple upside down cake ever in my life. Is that weird?

BUT, I’ve had the pineapple upside down cake shots and martini’s (made with vanilla vodka, pineapple juice, grenadine, and garnished with a maraschino cherry) at least a hundred bajillion times.

This is better than those.

For starters, you’ll notice from the pictures that there are no maraschino cherries on, around, or anywhere near this drink.

That’s because there’s not.

I don’t believe in them.

And I don’t believe in grenadine either.

Ok, maybe sometimes I’ll use the perfect vampire blood looking syrup, but only when the hubs and I are playing Edward & Bella I’m in charge of the Halloween punch!

I am trying very hard to change my eating habits and stick to foods and ingredients that are as organic and natural as possible (booze doesn’t count, duh).

So, the “mix” for this daiquiri is not impregnated with high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, or chemicals and preservatives we can’t pronounce.

No ma’am.

This is nothing but fruit, naturally sweetened soda water, and booze!

And, if you don’t have any frozen pineapple, just whip up a batch of my Pineapple and Creme Shaved Ice and use that instead!!!

Note: I freeze my own fruit, so I don’t know how this would work with canned fruit. If you try it, let me know please!

    Is whipped vodka a flavor of vodka, type of vodka?

    I appreciate you answering my question. I’m making this asap!

    • amber

      Yes, I’m sorry and thanks for pointing it out! It is whipped cream flavored vodka. There are all different kinds and you shouldn’t have a problem finding it.I used Burnetts and its cheap and good. If you can’t find it sub with vanilla flavored vodka or rum.Thanks again!

      I’m allergic to coconut what do I use in its place

      • Amber

        Tameya, you can use any kind of plain or neutrally flavored sparkling water in its place. Plain soda water, sprite, pineapple soda water, etc. should all work just fine.

  • I love pineapple upside down cake and though I often feature more classic cocktails on my Happy Hour Friday posts, summer allows for some fun and frou frou drinks for sure.

    But had to mention…don’t give up on grenadine just yet. The word comes from the French word grenade which is a pomegranate; so grenadine is actually ‘supposed’ to be pomegranate syrup. You basically make a simple syrup using pomegranate juice and it’s SO much better. I also make my own ‘maraschino’ cherries. Fresh or canned cherries are steeped in Maraschino liqueur and voila…the best ever! Try it, you’ll like it!

      I knew grenadine was “supposed” to be pomegranate syrup, but it’s very, very rare that you actually find pomegranate in the ingredient list! I actually ran across a bottle the other day that said “Made with real pomegranate juice” (or something of the like), but then the second ingredient was high fructose corn syrup. I’m trying really hard to steer clear of that junk too! I had no clue there was such a thing as Maraschino liqueur! If I ever have the chance to try (or make) maraschino cherries myself, I will *absolutely* do it! Sounds amazing and sooo much better than the candied full of artificial ingredients and dyes nastiness they put on the shelves these days! Thanks for your insight!

    Looks amazing !! What is the cream in the center?

    • amber
      May 21, 2012

      It’s just light cool whip! I put it in a plastic bag and squirted it on. B/c it’s light, it doesn’t hold it’s shape very well! :/

    I can not have alcohol, is there an easy way to do the pineapple drink with out alcohol?

    • amber
      May 21, 2012

      Of course you can! Just nix the alcohol, then add in some extra soda water &/or pineapple juice! Also, to get that cake like flavor you would get from the whipped cream vodka, you could either add in some real whipped cream, or just a touch of butter extract. Put a little of that in there, and you won’t miss the booze one bit!

    Looks like a fun recipe. I just bought a bottle of coconut vodka for another recipe and would love to figure out a few more ways to use it. I think I’ll try your recipe with the coconut vodka, plain soda water, and a dash of real whipped cream. Yummm.

    • amber

      I think that would work brilliantly!!! Let me know how it turns out!

      Thank you so much, John, and I apologize for the delay in my response! I’ve been super sick, and I’ve been taking some time off to try to recover. So happy you liked it!

    I use Cake Vodka instead of Whipped Cream…

    Good booze is pretty natural and it is only a matter of time before organic booze shows up on the shelves. Heck, could probably even argue that certain types of booze could be considered “paleo”. This looks yummy and when you said no maraschinos or grenadine I got happy because I am allergic to the stupid food coloring in them.

    • amber
      July 2, 2013

      Organic booze would be *amazing*!!! Now that I’m pregnant, I can taste food coloring in everything! I absolutely avoid it at all costs.

      Hi, Suzie! There is a Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest share button right above the post. These should help you share it with your friends within these three platforms. If you’d like to email it, the easiest way would be to copy and paste the link into an email to your friends. I will definitely look into finding an easier way to do this though. Thanks for your comment and your input! Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Cruzan Pineapple Rum! It’s affordable and delicious!

    Hi, I’m loving the glassware used for this daiquiri, would you know what it is called?

    • amber
      March 9, 2014

      Hi, Nina! I’m really not sure what kind of glasses they are. It almost looks like a beer glass of some sort to me. I got them at a thrift store. Sorry I can’t be of more help!
