Disaronno Island Chiller



This drink is our twist on the Disaronno Cranberry Chiller. Originally, I didn't think I would like this. When my husband made it I was like dark liquor and fruit juice? No thanks! That just didn't sound like a winning combination. In actuality, this is one of my favorite drinks; it's fruity and light and perfect for a BBQ or picnic. Also, I'm always looking for new ways to mix Disaronno (it's also nice just on the rocks) because it's such a nice liqueur. If you didn't know, Disaronno is an Italian amaretto flavored liqueur, which has an almond taste. Also, the bottle is gorgeous!

You'll need:

1 oz Disaronno
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Pineapple Rum (Original recipe calls for vodka, but I like the addition of this better)
1 1/2 oz Orange Juice
1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
Orange for garnish
Shaker
Jigger






This one is another easy one, you just put all the ingredients in the shaker with some ice and shake, shake, shake. Other variations can include switching the cranberry for pineapple juice, or adding in some coconut rum, both would make this light refreshing drink even more special and holiday feeling. I've got other ways to mix it up with Disaronno, but I'll save those for future drink posts. If there was only one drink you were going to try from this series, I'd say try this one, it's so good!

  2. I'll have to show this recipe to my OH. Disaronno is Dave's favourite liqueur although he usually just mixes it with apple and pear juice. I love a little mixed in with a hot chocolate for a really decadent cosy drink!

    1. Totally not weird, I have many friends who don't drink alcohol! I'd substitute the disaronno with ameretto syrup, add in a pineapple juice with the other juices and you'll have the perfect virgin version! Thanks for stopping in! XO -Kim
