Hand Grenade Cocktail

It’s a strong and fruity cocktail that is excellent for special occasions, but, like King Cake and Jambalaya, it’s a fun tradition on Mardi Gras!


How to Make New Orleans Hand Grenade

Pour the Midori, pineapple juice, vodka, gin, and rum into a cocktail shaker full of ice, cover it, and shake it until the beverage is blended and chilled.

Shake it like you mean it!

Add ice and shake the shaker full at least 20 to 30 shakes to ensure it is well chilled.

Pour your drink!

Add ice to a Collins glass (aka Highball) and strain the mixture over the ice.

Garnish & Serve

Garnish with a couple of pineapple leaves, slice of pineapple or honeydew melon and enjoy!
