Backyard Pineapple Slush 
Makes 6 cocktails

This colorful, frozen concoction is almost too pretty to drink. Frozen pineapple and Maraschino cherries give this beverage a tropical and summery feel. These bad boys contain a good bit of white whisky and a healthy pour of prosecco, making them perfect for (heavy) alfresco drinking with friends.

1 cup prosecco
1/2 cup of moonshine
2 cups frozen pineapple
2 cups ice
1 tbsp honey
Pineapple slices, for garnish
Maraschino cherries, for garnish
1-2 tbsp Maraschino cherry liquid


1. In a blender, add all ingredients except Maraschino liquid and garnishes. Blend until smooth and frosty.

2. Spoon a tablespoon or two of Maraschino liquid into a wine or hurricane glass.

3. Slowly pour the slush over the liquid and watch as the deep red cherry juice swirls through the frosty beverage.

4. Top with your fruit garnishes and enjoy through a straw.
