Ahh, Elizabeth Banks: a woman after our own heart. She clearly understands our love for piña coladas. And sangria. Also margaritas. And her video has just given us the hankering for an entirely new cocktail that’s basically a combination of all three. All hail the cocktail queen!

Sometimes (maybe even lots of times), we all need a little “mom juice”. In this beautifully touching video, drunk moms were prompted with questions ranging from “what do you love most about your kids?” to “what was pregnancy like?” The latter prompted this succinct response: “That’s the weirdest shit anybody can ever deal with.” Truth.

The best part about summer is that your kids’ bedtimes happen while it’s still light out, letting you kick back on the porch with a drink in your hand while you watch the sunset.

That is, until someone decides to get up to ask you for a glass of water and your moment is over. Oh well… if the cocktail is good enough, it’s all worth it! Here are our 5 favorite summer cocktails to keep you going!

Blue Hawaiian With Coconut Rum Soaked Pineapple

Ingredients
1 fresh pineapple, cut into bite sized pieces
16 ounces of coconut rum
Bottle of Blue Curacao
Larger can of DOLE pineapple juice
Coconut Rum, that is now infused with pineapple
Ice
Pitcher

Directions

After cutting up your fresh pineapple, place the pieces into a large bowl and pour 16 ounces of coconut rum over top. Seal bowl with either a lid or foil and refrigerate as long as possible; preferably overnight. Keep this in mind—the longer it soaks, the more rum-soaked the pineapple becomes :) The next day, just before your gathering, strain pineapple over a container and reserve the rum. You will need it!

Now this recipe will be done to taste, as you may not have the same amount of coconut rum left that I had. So, in a chilled pitcher, add ice, coconut rum, pineapple juice, and blue curacao. It will be very similar to a Blue Hawaiian, but again, made to taste. If you’d prefer a frozen drink, simply add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until slushy.

Next, impress your guests by presenting them with the coconut rum soaked pineapple as an appetizer or dessert, and the cocktail you have made from infusing coconut rum with pineapple. I guarantee they will be singing songs of praise to you. And if they don’t? You probably need to consider getting new friends ;)
