If you want an easy mocktail to make, try your hand at making a sparkling pineapple. It’s easy to make one for yourself or to serve up an entire bowl of sparkling pineapple punch for a party.

For your sparkling pineapple mocktail, you’ll need 2 liters of ginger ale, 1 liter of sparkling water. You also need 2 cups of pineapple juice and 3 cups of frozen fruit.

We suggest using strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and cranberries. However, whatever frozen fruit you like will do the trick! Using the ingredients we just listed, you’ll be able to make about 15-17 sparkling pineapple drinks.

Before mixing things together, chill the ginger ale and sparkling water. Then carefully pour the chilled drinks into a large punch bowl. Add in the sparkling water and stir things up.

Then you can slowly stir in this pineapple juice, and you’ll be all done! Garnish the individual drink cups with the frozen fruit, and get ready to delight your taste buds.
