Red, White and Blue Sangrias

Red, White and Blue Sangrias are perfect for the Fourth Of July and I made these exclusively for Discover, a blog by World Market. This post is sponsored by World Market

Fourth of July. When you see all things red, white and blue, especially foods. The majority of what you see these days are off-putting foods that have been so heavily artificially colored into being very unappetizing and almost unedible. I am all for a little goes a long way. I decided to go with something a lot more naturally colored with these Red, White and Blue Sangrias using a wide variety of fruits.

I went with three different Sangrias instead of a red, white and blue all in one glass. This way you can choose your own Sangria and still remain festive and patriotic! Or mix together if you like. But each have their own distinct flavors and fruits, they really taste best on their own, but look pretty next to each other. Especially for a Sangria bar at a holiday party.

Hawaiian White Russian Cocktail

Happy Aloha Friday! It is time for another Koloa Rum cocktail creation. This time it is my take on the White Russian, with a Hawaiian White Russian.

Hawaiian White Russian Cocktail www.pineappleandcoconut.com #KoloaRum

When Koloa Rum Company told me about their amazing Kaua’i Coffee rum last year I couldn’t wait to try it. Eric, the western sales manager was visiting clients here in Las Vegas and I met him at the strip and we sat down to sample it. I was smitten at first sip. It is incredibly smooth, a strong coffee flavor but not overpowering at all, hints of caramel from the sugar cane and such a nice finish to it that it is excellent on its own or as the star in many cocktails.

Koloa rum sent me a bottle of their amazing rum and these adorable rocks glasses as well to try out the rum. I was having a hard time not drinking it all before creating cocktails with it! I do test all my recipes and I was making mini versions so I would have enough left over since I have many cocktails in the works with this delicious rum.
