This cocktail is easy to make with Mojito Cocktail Mix, but takes a little prep beforehand for the pineapple ice cubes. If you want, skip this step by  substituting 1/2 cup of frozen pineapple chunks and 1/4 cup of water for the pineapple juice.

Make Your Own Cocktail Rim Sugar

There are endless ways to dress up your glass rims, like adding crushed candy, edible glitter or even sprinkles. Let your imagination take over!

  1. Place 1/4 cup granulated sugar or turbinado sugar in small plastic bag
  2. Add a 1/4 teaspoon of your choice of spice. Our favorite for the holidays is cinnamon.
  3. Shake the bag until mixed, then pour into shallow dish wide enough to fit top of glass.

Blending the pineapple cubes and orange juice creates a delicious foam on top of the cocktail.  And doesn’t the Lemon Drop Martini Rimmer look pretty on the glass? It tastes amazing too!
