There is something about tropical drinks and vacation. They seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. And I’m not sure there is anything better than hanging out with family and friends without the need to check your watch because you’re on vacation.

The tropical flavor combination of pineapple, grapefruit and coconut of this drink will have you transported to the beach in your imagination for some relaxation and fun! Add to it a vibrant pink color that looks like a beautiful sunset, and it’s the perfect way to close your eyes and unwind!
