Pineapple Orange Crusher

I had soooo much fun last week making my cherry beer margaritas that I decided to post a new cocktail recipe every Thursday.  It’s The Blond Cook’s Thirsty Thursday…not too original, I know, but oh well.  It works for me!  I named this “drink of the week” Pineapple Orange Crusher.

I received a lot of positive feedback on the idea of making a simple cocktail without having to do much measuring (using the empty can of frozen concentrate for measuring).  My mind went  ballistic in excitement trying to concoct another one of these little beer-cocktail recipes.

So here ya’ go:  In a pitcher, mix 1 can of pineapple orange juice concentrate (thawed), 1 can of pineapple vodka, 2 cans of ginger ale, and 1 bottle of Blue Moon beer.  Yep.  Blue Moon beer (one of my favorites!).  Just try it; you’ll understand once you take a sip.

Oh, and must I tell you why I named it “Pineapple Orange CRUSHER“?   Proceed with caution :-).  Happy Thursday ~ Cheers!

    I made a pitcher of these to celebrate my friend’s birthday, and they were such a big hit!! They DO pack a punch, but went down so easily!!! We’ll definitely have them again!!!
