Pineapple lemonade is a refreshing and tropical twist on the classic lemonade. Here’s a simple recipe for you to enjoy:


  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks (or canned pineapple chunks)
  • 1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 4-6 lemons)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 4 cups cold water
  • Ice cubes
  • Lemon slices and pineapple wedges for garnish (optional)
  • Mint leaves for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Pineapple:
    • If using fresh pineapple, peel and core the pineapple, and cut it into chunks. If using canned pineapple, drain the juice.
  2. Make Simple Syrup:
    • In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of water and the granulated sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring until the sugar completely dissolves. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  3. Blend Pineapple:
    • In a blender, blend the fresh pineapple chunks until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a little water to help with blending.
  4. Strain Pineapple Puree:
    • Strain the blended pineapple through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove any pulp. Collect the pineapple juice in a bowl.
  5. Mix Lemonade:
    • In a large pitcher, combine the fresh-squeezed lemon juice, pineapple juice, and the simple syrup. Stir well to combine.
  6. Add Cold Water:
    • Pour in 4 cups of cold water and mix well. Adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar if needed.
  7. Chill:
    • Refrigerate the pineapple lemonade for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the drink to chill.
  8. Serve:
    • Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the chilled pineapple lemonade over the ice.
  9. Garnish:
    • Garnish with lemon slices, pineapple wedges, and mint leaves if desired.
  10. Enjoy:
    • Stir the pineapple lemonade before serving, and enjoy this tropical and refreshing beverage!

Feel free to adjust the sweetness and tartness to suit your taste preferences. This pineapple lemonade is perfect for hot summer days or anytime you want a taste of the tropics in your glass.
