If you love creamy concoctions, savoring a Pineapple Chi-Chi, the piña colada’s equally decadent cousin, must be on your agenda, along with visiting the Hamptons at least once on a non-crowded day. Replacing rum with vodka, the classic Pineapple Chi-Chi was first made popular during the '70s, but everyone loves a comeback. This modern take on the old-school favorite features vodka infused with sun-kissed pineapple, as well as velvety coconut milk and cane sugar syrup from the tropics.

Pineapple Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Pineapple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
