Everyone loves a summer cocktail, and bonus points if it’s quick and easy to make! Plus, we love when recipes require minimal ingredients that you most likely already have at home. Here is an easy summer cocktail recipe featuring a pineapple rum punch that you should try the next time you’re craving a delicious drink!

On a hot day, there’s nothing better than sipping on a fruity and delicious cocktail, so this pineapple-inspired drink is bound to quench your thirst! You can easily adapt it if you don’t enjoy rum or want to add a different flavor, such as strawberry or peach. If you don’t feel like taking out the muddler, feel free to skip the muddling and squeeze a little lime in at the end!

Pineapple Rum Punch Recipe: 


  • Rum – preferably white
  • 1 6-oz. can of pineapple juice – buying the small cans is a great option when you need just a little pineapple juice in cocktails
  • 1 can of Bivouac Marlin Spike Pineapple Pear Cider
  • 1 Lime
  • Ice
  • Fresh mint leaves

 Other items you will need: 

  • Glass
  • Muddler
  • Lemon/lime squeezer – a great kitchen gadget, but if you don’t have one, hand-squeeze the lime

Time to make: 10 minutes

Serves: 1

 Step 1: Muddle

 Cut half a lime into pieces and muddle the lime with about 5-8 mint leaves in a bowl or glass. If you don’t have a muddler (or are feeling a little lazy), you can skip this step or use a wooden spoon to get the same desired effect. Pour a shot of rum in with the muddled lime and mint mixture to allow the rum to soak in the flavors of the lime and mint.

  • If you aren’t a fan of rum, you can swap vodka for rum for a slightly different taste.
  • You can also add sugar or simple syrup if you like a sweeter drink!

Step 2: Combine the drink ingredients

Add ice to your glass, and then pour in the mixture of rum, mint, and lime using a strainer or spoon. Pour in a splash of pineapple juice for some added flavor, and then top with half a can of Bivouac Marlin Spike Pineapple Pear Cider. The cider adds more pineapple flavor while providing a bit of carbonation! 

  • Feel free to adjust the proportions of pineapple juice and Bivouac Marlin Spike Pineapple Pear Cider depending on your preferences!
  • If you don’t have pineapple juice, consider blending fresh pineapple to create a smoothie-like texture. You can also use any other fruit juice that compliments the Bivouac Marlin Spike Pineapple Pear Cider!

Step 3: Stir & Enjoy

Stir to ensure all the ingredients are mixed, and top with a piece of fresh pineapple! Now you have a delicious and fruity summer cocktail made in less than 5 minutes!

These measurements are perfect for a single serving! If you are making drinks for two people, double the recipe. We recommend quadrupling the ingredients in a pitcher for a large group.

 This drink is perfect for lounging by the pool, drinking at a BBQ, bringing to a friend’s house, or simply enjoying on a summer evening!
