Pineapple Limeade Cooler Recipe

Drinks | 25 comments

You might have noticed that this Pineapple Limeade Cooler Recipe made an appearance in a couple of photos recently. First the Fajita Burger with Peppers and Guacamole and then they appeared again in the Sweet Potato and Black Bean Taco Recipe.

It started out as just a prop when I made the burgers, but Eric walked downstairs while I was photographing and commented: “Look at those pretty drinks.” I told him that he could have one of the since I was done photographing.

It turns out that this Pineapple Limeade Cooler was more than just pretty prop for the photo. We decided to give this simple drink recipe another go on purpose. They’re so refreshing on a hot day and tasted great with the Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos the other day.

You can use a fresh Limeade recipe or your favorite store-bought limeade in this Pineapple Limeade Cooler, whichever you like best. I like to make homemade limeade, but if I’m busy or I have some on hand I also like Simply Limeade. The little individual six ounce size cans of pineapple juice are perfect for these drinks. Store them in the fridge so they’re nice and chilly.

    Yum!! Do you use a lightbox or just natural light?

    Also… these could easily be made into “adult” beverages! I have a girls night coming up and these would be a welcome addition!

    Oh DEAR, I could slurp that drink down with one gulp.

    But I’d try to be lady like about it. Maybe.

    Wow, this looks so refreshing! A few weeks ago I bought loads of berries at the market, put them in mason jars, and poured vodka over. I let them sit for about a week and we’ve had such fun creating new drinks every few days.

    These look irresistible! I think this drink would also work beautifully with some mango puree! I let you know how it turns out!

    I love the idea of mixing pineapple and lime with the lime juice cutting the super sweet pineapple. Plus, you added bubbles! Perfection. It’s like soda I’m proud to be serving my kids.

    Is it possible to make it half an hr in advance or can I at least mix limeaid and pineapple juice in advance, keep it refrigerated and mix sierra mist 5 mins before serving?

    Can I substitute Sierra Mist with Sprite?

    Thanks so much.

      Yes it can be made ahead of time without the carbonation. Use whatever lemon\lime soda you like.

    Indeed it does look refreshing. It popped right off of the screen when I was browsing FoodGawker!
