Ingredients & Artful Substitutions


Choose a vodka brand that suits your taste preferences.

Pineapple Rum:

Opt for pineapple-infused rum to elevate the tropical essence. Light or dark rum can be alternatives, but the pineapple-infused variety adds an extra layer of flavor.


Revel in the almond-kissed notes of amaretto, an almond-flavored liqueur crafted with almonds and apricot pit kernels.


Embrace the purity of 100% juice to complement the natural sweetness of the drink. Adjust the juice quantities to achieve your desired taste.


Elevate your sipper’s aesthetic with orange slices or indulge in the optional delight of cherries as a garnish.

Can I Prepare This Libation in Advance?

Absolutely! For seamless entertaining, concoct a larger batch of the Sunshine Bliss Sipper and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When the moment calls for refreshment, a quick pour over ice will have glasses brimming with sunny delight.

No Cocktail Shaker? No Problem!

Should a cocktail shaker elude you, fear not! A to-go coffee mug with a secure lid can serve as your alternative mixing vessel. Packed with ice, add the ingredients, cover the lid, and shake away. Alternatively, skip the shaking step and merely pour the ingredients over ice, giving them a gentle stir.
