pineapple juice, chilled
vanilla flavored vodka
I am a bartender, i have served a version of this drink with great results. In order to get a real upside-down cake flavor, add amaretto. watch out for grenadine. Some complain of being too sweet. I serve it as a cocktail with a splash of cranberry. (offsetts the sweetness, adds the color that grenadine does.) I named it pineapple upside-down cake because it totally reminded me of one of my favorite desserts.
A very, very good drink, but only if you make it right. First off, it MUST have Amaretto to make it taste like a real pineapple upside down cake. Usually a heavy splash or so. Second, use very good vanilla vodka. I've tried it with cheap vodka, and you can't taste the vanilla, which really makes or breaks this drink. You might be able to get away with regular vodka and a light splash of vanilla extract, but I really suggest the vanilla vodka.
Very, very good. I added a touch of amaretto and it was just like a pineapple upside down cake. I'd make this again and again.
Vanilla Vodka is good but try using Vanilla McGillicuddy's. It's a whole new ballgame
Excellent! A girlfriend and I made these at my b-day party. Love the flavors. I will be making this again.
HOOCHIE MAMMA! These little drinky-poos will have you licking your lips while watching the room spin in no time flat. Delish but potent! I couldn't find pineapple juice (I live in the boonies) so used pineapple cocktail juice instead (pineapple, passion, mango)...also didn't have vanilla vodka so just added a couple drops of Watkins vanilla and as another review suggested, 1/4 cup of amaretto. Wow! My girlfriend and I took one sip and knew we were in for trouble! Our hubbies found them too sweet - so this is definitely one for the gals. Enjoy!
Loved it! I used some of the juice from the cherries instead of grenadine just because I'm lazy. ;o) Even hubby enjoyed one of these. Thanks for the recipe!
Holy cow were these good! I had a girl's night out party at my house and decided to give these a try. It's almost scary how easy they were to make let alone how fast they were gone! I agree, they do smell and taste like the real deal.
French toast is such a perfect breakfast, light lunch, or even supper on these warm days.
