FAQs and Variations to this Pineapple Vodka Cocktail Recipe 

Keep in mind that any changes to this perfect cocktail recipe may alter the taste, but you can absolutely make changes to it to suit your personal preferences.

  • Can I make this drink sweeter? We think the sweet-tart pineapple balance is perfect but if you prefer sweeter you can add a little simple syrup to this already fruity cocktail. 
  • Can I use flavored vodka? I’m sure there’s no reason why you can’t play around with flavored vodkas like pineapple-infused vodka or vanilla vodka. But I do not think that pineapple vodka should replace the actual pineapple juice in the recipe. 
  • Can I use a different juice? If you opt for cranberry juice, fresh orange juice, or even grapefruit juice then this is no longer a pineapple juice drink. But again, go ahead and try different things until you find what you love.
