Crushed Ice: If using whole ice cubes, crush them first in the blender and set them aside in the freezer. 

Add Pineapple & Lime: In a blender, combine the pineapple chunks (or crushed pineapple) and the lime juice. 

Add Mint: Rip the mint leaves into small pieces and add them to the blender. Blend with the pineapple and lime until smooth. 

Blend With Ice: Add the crushed ice to the blender and pulse a few times to mix it with the pineapple puree. If you prefer a smoother texture, blend until the ice is fully incorporated. 

Assemble the Drink: Pour the mixture into serving glasses, leaving some room at the top for the club soda.

Add Sparkle: Gently top off each glass with club soda, stirring lightly to combine without losing too much fizz.

Garnish and Serve: Garnish each glass with a pineapple wedge, mint leaf or lime slice. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • Choose The Best Pineapple: For the best pineapple flavor, select the best pineapple. Look for one that has a firm, plump body without bruises or soft spots. The leaves should be green and fresh-looking. A ripe pineapple will have a sweet aroma at the base.
  • Adjust the Fizz: The amount of club soda can be adjusted according to your preference for fizziness. Start with less and add more as needed to find your perfect balance.
  • Chill Your Ingredients: For an extra cold and refreshing drink, ensure all your ingredients, including the pineapple, lime juice, and sparkling water, are chilled before blending.

Can I use canned pineapple instead of fresh?

Yes, canned crushed pineapple works well if fresh pineapple isn’t available.

Can this pineapple crush mocktail be made ahead of time?

Absolutely! You can prepare the pineapple, lime juice and mint leaf mixture ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Add the ice and club soda just before serving.

Is there an alcohol version?

Easily transform this pineapple crush mocktail into a cocktail by adding a shot of rum or your favorite liquor to each glass before topping it with sparkling water.
