Pina Colada Champagne Punch
This Pina Colada recipe will be your new favorite happy hour drink! Made with four simple ingredients, this fantastic champagne punch is perfect for parties, showers, Sunday brunch and girls nights! Forget the blender, this amazing pineapple coconut cocktail is super easy and completely delicious!
Even though we’ve had an unusually mild, almost non-existent winter, summer can’t get here quick enough. I’ve been getting very tired of my bulky sweaters and am really looking forward to the days of wearing shorts and sandals. I’m longing for the days of sitting in the sunshine, and sipping a cold, delicious drink. Which brings me to my latest drink creation – this fabulous Pina Colada Champagne Punch!
Much like my popular Pina Colada Smoothie this easy champagne punch is made in just a couple of minutes with just a few simple ingredients! It’s perfect for parties, bridal showers or just a lazy afternoon for you and your favorite lawn chair. Let me show you how simple this Pina Colada Champagne Punch is to throw together – no blender necessary!
Step 1: Place Fresh or Frozen Pineapple into Pitcher and add Rum
I had a fresh pineapple sitting on my counter that I needed to slice up, however, frozen pineapple works great for this champagne punch. Add it frozen right to the pitcher, as it will help chill the rest of the ingredients.
On top of the pineapple, add your favorite coconut rum. I like using Malibu rum – I think it smells like a tropical vacation! Mmmmmm, so good!
Step 2: Add Pineapple Juice
I added simple pineapple juice from the can for this recipe. If you’re making and serving this punch right away, make sure you chill the juice first, as this champagne punch tastes the best served very cold.
Note: If you have extra pineapple juice (I had quite a bit left from the can I bought) pore the juice into ice cube trays and freeze it. You can add the cubes to the next batch of punch you make.
Step 3: Add Chilled Champagne
For this recipe, feel free to use your preference of any sparkling wine, champagne, Moscato or Prosecco. Don’t hold back – pour in the entire bottle! If it bubbles up, let the bubbles go down and pour in the rest.
Step 4: Mix and Pour
Simply give the champagne punch a stir, and pour into your favorite wine glasses or champagne flutes. I added some pineapple slices and flake coconut to the bottom of each glass. It’s a great way to ensure each glass has plenty of pineapple and the coconut adds a pretty pina colada garnish to the top of each drink.
Step 5: Garnish and Enjoy!
I skewered some fresh pineapple slices with maraschino cherries for the perfect pina colada garish. It makes the drinks look really pretty and adds a great tropical flare, because – if you can’t be sitting on a beach somewhere, this might be the next best thing! 🙂
Here’s a quick shopping list for the ingredients you’ll need to make this simple and delicious champagne punch:
- Fresh or frozen pineapple
- Pineapple juice
- Coconut Rum (like Malibu)
- 1 bottle (750 ml) Champagne, Sparkling Wine, Prosecco or Moscato
- Optional garnishes: Coconut flakes, maraschino cherries, additional pineapple slices
