Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail

I wasn't sure what to call this delicious cocktail. I decided to name it a Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail. I filled my blender with these summertime ingredients and we all enjoyed this cocktail. You can make it as a virgin drink by omitting the vodka.

This recipe served 4 of us! I made fresh lemonade without sugar and the pear nectar is optional. I made the first batch without the pear nectar and when I was making the next batch I realized I had some in the refrigerator and decided to use it.. Really yummy..

Of course I used my KitchenAid® 3-Speed Blender!

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: medium

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I bought a fresh pineapple along with other fresh fruit for the weekend. We never cut open the pineapple and I kept moving it around the kitchen and finally the pineapple became my centerpiece. After a couple of days I decided to make a Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake and this dessert was enjoyed by my lake neighbors.

You can use canned pineapple for this recipe but the fresh pineapple was amazing. There was extra pineapple so I chopped and added some in the mixture and enjoyed some for myself! The cook needs to eat too...

I used a 9x9 metal pan. My initial thought was to prepare this in a cast iron pan but mine is at home in Connecticut and I am baking this at our lake house. I do plan on making this again using my cast iron pan.
