Pineapple and Orange Rum Slush

I’d been wanting to trial an alcoholic slush for a while now. And this tropical drink, inspired-by flavours from the Bahamas is the perfect opportunity! This frozen rum drink is one of my best ideas yet!

  •  It’s a bit of fun!
  • An alcoholic slush is the perfect party-pleaser. You’ll be the talk of the neighbourhood!
  • Ready in under an hour
  • Relive your childhood (minus the alcohol!)


Pineapple juice – Juice from a carton is sufficient
Orange Juice
Coconut water
Spiced rum – I used my favourite Barbados rum from Mount Gay
Lime slices


So, this Pineapple and Orange Slush is super simple to make but there’s one thing you’ll need first: an ice cream maker. I spoke about why I love my Cuisinart Gelato and Ice Cream Maker in my Roasted Banana Gelato post, so head on over there to learn more about how the machine works. Although I’m sure anything that chills and churns would suit this recipe, so any good ice cream maker would be fine.

I like to serve mine with a wedge of lime but you could also use orange or pineapple slices.


Here are there questions you’ve been asking, answered!

Can I make this slushie without a machine?

I’ve not tested the method myself but research tells me that you can use a blender and LOTS of ice. Simply pour the liquid and ice into a blender and blend until crushed. You’ll need one that’s powerful enough to do this. I’d maybe recommend the Ninja Multi-Serve Blender* which is more on the professional side. You could consider something for a fraction of the price like the Cooks Professional Slushie Maker.* The only downside is that you can only use this to make slushies.

*Please note that none of these products have been tested by myself. They are all recommended from my own research online.

Why did I add water to the slush?

Water is needed because alcohol doesn’t freeze well. The addition of water helps the slushy become icy, and don’t worry, it doesn’t water down the cocktail.

The Recipe

Pineapple and Orange Rum Slush

  • Serves: 2
  • Difficulty: Easy

A super simple recipe for creating your own alcoholic slushie! A great one to serve up at barbecues and pool parties.

  • 100ml coconut water
  • 80ml spiced rum
  • 40ml grenadine
  • 100ml cold water

  • 1First you’ll need to pre-freeze your ice cream maker bowl. You don’t need to do that if you have the Cuisinart machine.
  • 2In a jug, mix together the pineapple juice, orange juice, coconut water, spiced rum, grenadine and water.
