Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash | Sauce + Style

You all know we LOVE to get our grill on in the summer. There's only a few precious month's of grilling and boozing to make the most of before the cold weather sets in. As much as we still love those fall months (can you say 'tailgating heaven'?), we kind of wish we could grill all year round.

So when those warm temps hit, it's all about grilling all the things. We grill our meats, our veggies, our desserts and now, even our cocktails. Grilled pineapple is already one of our fav summer treats, so why not throw it in with some bourbon so you have something delicious to sip on while you're working hard over that hot grill? There's no reason not to, obviously.

These bourbon smash cocktails are packed with grilled pineapple so they are almost like a sangria with all that chunky fruit in there. Of course, instead of wine there's a ton o' bourbon - right up our alley for cocktail hour. Keeping those summer vibes going and working our grills as hard as possible is all we BBQ-loving peeps know how to do, after all. Cheers to the summer!

INSTRUCTIONS: In the bottom of a double old fashioned glass, muddle grilled pineapple with lime juice.
