Aloha Screwdriver

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, as in just a few days. Time to celebrate all the great mom’s out there who work so hard.

You’ve probably heard it before but being a mom is truly one of the most challenging jobs around. So let’s let our moms kick back and relax because they deserve it.

What better way to kick back and relax than with a drink in hand, amiright? Be sure to add this Aloha Screwdriver to your cocktail list because it’s a fruity, delicious drink spiked with vodka.

And you can’t go wrong with vodka! What sets this screwdriver apart from its original counterpart is the Dole Pineapple Juice. It adds a sweet/tart taste that’s just phenomenal. You might enjoy it so much that you’ll never return to OJ.

Pineapple juice has always been a favorite of mine ever since I was a kid. It’s one of my pantry staples as it can be used in so many sweet or savory recipes and drinks. Try it in place of the apple cider vinegar in my homemade bbq sauce recipe!

Honestly, this drink is so, so good. Too good, actually.

As in, you might make a pitcher of this and then not want to share. But, since we’re celebrating with others, we need to get over our 5-year-old selves and put our sharing pants on.

Since this Aloha Screwdriver is perfect for brunching, you’ll need something to eat, right? 

Pair this cocktail with Blueberry Dutch Babies, Bacon and Swiss Quiche, a fruit salad, and Bacon Wrapped Kielbasa Bites for a complete and satisfyingly delicious brunch!

For a second drink option, if you want something a little more savory, make a Bloody Mary.

This brunch menu would be great for Mother’s Day, Sunday, or any other day you’re looking to celebrate with good food, good drinks and great friends & family.
