Spicy Pineapple Mocktail

This spicy pineapple mocktail is a fun drink to make this summer. I’m not going to lie, it does have a kick to it, but as someone who doesn’t tolerate spice well, I still like it! I’ve added some ways to make it less spicy (and how to turn it into a cocktail) below.

What you’ll need to make this spicy pineapple mocktail

You’ll need the following to make this drink:

  • Honey or maple syrup: I used maple syrup because it’s all I had, but I think honey would be better.
  • Tajin: a requirement! It’s a little spicy, but it’s balanced nicely with the sweetness of the honey or syrup
  • Pineapple juice
  • Lime juice: you’ll need juice from about 1/2 a lime
  • Spicy pineapple soda: The Great Gentleman is the only brand that I’ve used, but if you can find another brand that has something similar, you can try that
  • Ice: a must!


  • Make it a cocktail: if you’d prefer to make this a cocktail, you can reduce some of the Spicy Pineapple soda and add alcohol (tequila would give it margarita vibes).
  • Less spicy: if you really don’t like spice, then you can remove the Tajin and use salt like you would a margarita. The Spicy Pineapple soda is a crucial ingredient, but you could use less and add some sparkling water.
