Koloa Rum Pineapple Freeze

Koloa Rum

What if I told you that you could take a legendary childhood treat and flip it into a cocktail? Yep, that’s right, you can take Disney’s Dole Whip and “adult-ify-it” here’s how..

Few food treats have reached the iconic status that Disneyland’s Dole Whip has. I can’t imagine visiting the park and not indulging in one of these tasty treats.

For those of you that don’t know, a Dole Whip is a pineapple-flavored soft-serve ice cream. It’s practically achieved a cult following as visitors to Disney will wait in a very long line just to get one on a hot day.

The Dole Whip was originally created by the fruit company, Dole, but became available at Disneyland’s Tiki Bar in 1986. It’s now served at a few different locations in the park and also across the country, but is synonymous with Disneyland.

A few years ago I visited a non-Disney related Tiki Bar who had the GENIUS idea of adding rum to this classic frozen dessert!  GAME CHANGER!

Of course I HAD to come up with my own version to blend up at home.

The Koloa Rum Pineapple Freeze is a smooth frozen alcoholic drink that’s made in the blender. With just four ingredients you’ll have a fruity and fun drink that brings back all the childhood joy of Disneyland but with an adult twist.

The key ingredient to this recipe is the the “topper” or “floater” of Koloa Kaua’i Coconut Rum. Sustainably sourced and crafted from premium ingredients including native tall sugarcane grown on the island of Kaua’i, they use a 1210 gallon copper-pot still to create their rums. Each product is twice distilled, blended and bottled on site. Their distillery and bottling facility is housed in Kalaheo and produces both Koloa’s Hawaiian rum and Kukui brand fruit products. Unlike most rum it’s flavor is full but not overly sweet which pairs well with the sweet flavor of the frozen pineapple and ice cream, PLUS it’s 80 proof status gives the cocktail the perfect kick.

Now, get out your Disney ears and be prepared to be “wowed” by this delish Koloa Rum Pineapple Freeze cocktail. Be warned, it’s bound to bring out your “goofy” side.

What I Would Have Worn to Disneyland

This time every year my entire family takes an annual trip to Disneyland.  We have been doing it as long as I can remember. The summer of 2020 will be the first time we miss it.

I have so many amazing memories from these trips. We take it very seriously, plan out our route to every ride and it’s timing on the app, secure our fast passes and map out every food stop.  We arrive as the gates open to the park and then close it out with the fireworks at the end of the night.  One huge totally Disney packed day filled with laughs, photos, rides, memories, sometimes a lost phone or one of the kids (or husbands) has a tantrum, churros and of course Dole Whips.

For those of you that may not know what a Dole Whip is you need to get with the program..  located on the Jungle River shores in Adventureland right outside The Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland Park is the Dole Whip stand- recently the park has expanded the area and built The Tropical Hideaway next door which hosts a bevy of extraordinary worldly eats. Menu items include chilled ramen salad, warm steamed bao buns, Sweet Pineapple Lumpia and the iconic Dole Whip. It’s a must-do when charting out your food stops.

The magical Dole Whip is a dairy free (yay) ice cream type pineapple delight served in a soft serve style swirl. When I think of Disneyland food Dole Whip’s and Churros are the creme de la creme of park culinary delights!

A few weeks ago Disneyland shared their Official Dole Whip recipe through their Disneyland app (which I am sharing at the end of the post) and I have been blending those babies up ever since.

It’s a little dose of Disney magic right in your own home.

Everything Disney makes me happy, so this week I decided to dress up for Disneyland anyway and share what I would have worn #WIWHW (is that a thing now?) to Disneyland this year.

I have to say, it totally boosted my mood! If you are a Disneyland aficionado like me I highly recommend donning your Disney best this week for an instant “Spoon Full of Sugar” to your day!
