Summer is around the corner and I am bringing back one of my favorite drink recipes, Pinkglow Frosé. This recipe is made with Pink Pineapples. Yes, you heard right, Pink Pineapples.
If you don’t know by now, Pink Pineapples do exist. The company who makes them is Del Monte, who is a huge producer in pineapples and other fruits.
This recipe is refreshing and just want you need to cool down in that Summer heat.
Note: Now this recipe does have alcohol in it, so drink responsible.
What type of alcohol is used in this recipe?
In the recipe, I used a bold rosé such as a Pinot Noir. You can use Merlot rosé as well.
What if I don’t drink alcohol, is there a substitute?
Yes! You can substitute the alcohol for sparking soda or water.
What makes the Pineapples Pink?
Pink pineapples are genetically modified fruit that stay pink and sweeter than yellow pineapples.

What does the Pink Pineapples taste like?
“The pink pineapples are said to be less sour, juicier and sweeter than their yellow cousins and to have “notes of candy pineapple aromatics.”Food Network
I found the taste to be similar, but I enjoy regular yellow pineapples more.
What is the cost?
The cost can run you between $30-$50+. Luckily for me, I was gifted the Pinkglow Pineapple from Del Monte.
Del Monte says the pineapples are so expensive because it takes as long as two years to grow each one on a farm in Costa Rica.
Maybe if they grown them in the United States, they would be cheaper right? Just my theory.
Where can you purchase them?
