Aloha Friday Martini ( Pineapple Coconut Martini)

Happy Aloha Friday!! Celebrate with my Aloha Friday Martini aka Pineapple Coconut Martini.

Aloha Friday Martini ( Pineapple Coconut Martini) www.pineappleandcoconut.com

I find it funny when people see my blog name and think that either my recipes have pineapple and coconut in them OR that I think all Hawaiian recipes have pineapple and coconut in them OR that I have no clue about Hawaiian culture and cuisine and think adding in pineapple and or coconut makes the Hawaiian. Which all of the above isn’t true at all. Even though I made a pineapple coconut martini for this post, I do see the irony, but I actually know that the pineapple didn’t originate in Hawaii and neither did the coconut. But there are many people  out there that associate both with Hawaii.

Simple as that. I do happen to love the foods and adding them into my recipes but that is the meaning behind my blog name.
