Cuban Breeze Cocktail

Sharing is caring!

Cuban Breeze Cocktail is a such a sweet and tropical drink. Amaretto, vodka, and pineapple juice come together to make a crowd worthy Cuban cocktail. Giving it the perfect island breeze taste.

The best part of many vacations is food and drinks.  There truly is no better a feeling than being on vacation on a tropical island and sipping on a pineapple based cocktail.  Extra points if it is served in the pineapple with little umbrellas in the straw.  

Cuban Breeze Cocktail

The name itself embodies a perfect island dream come true.  Cuban Breeze Cocktail, the perfect drink for the perfect night.  Thick cocktail is super easy to make and don’t feel you have to be a bartender to master it. 

What Is A Good Mix For Amaretto 

I find that pineapple juice and lime juice work fantastic with amaretto. It really gives it an ocean-worthy flavor. Of course, you can mix other things with Amaretto like lemon juice and orange juice as well. Citrus flavors are always a success when it comes to pairing next to amaretto. 

Can I Double This Cuban Cocktail Recipe 

Yes, you are more than welcome to make as much or as little of this drink as you would like. I wanted to give you a small recipe so if you wanted a cocktail or two at the end of the day you could easily do that. But if you are hosting a get-together or summer party and want a refreshing cocktail, you can easily measure and make a larger mixture to pour into glasses.

Can I Make This Cuban Breeze Cocktail Ahead of Time 

If you want to make your cocktail in advance just make sure to stir it well before serving. I find it is best when served fresh or within the hour it is made. You will find if you have any ice in your drink it will water it down making the flavors less apparent. So skip any ice if you do make ahead. 

Fresh Lime Juice 

One thing I want to really stress is to use fresh lime juice. The bottled lime juice is just not the same and fresh lime juice will really liven up the cocktail. It only takes a minute or two to squeeze a lime or two, so don’t skip that step in this cocktail!
