Bring on the island vibes with this coconut-y, pineapple-y, Vodka and Aperol-based concoction.

Is it bad that it's only Monday and I'm already thinking about weekend cocktails?

Since I'm all about the island vibes these days, this gorgeous concoction from @_voodoococktails_ stopped me in my tracks (aka Instagram scroll)! Pineapple, coconut, lime....yes, please. This is the perfect combination of flavors to create a tropical vibe at home any time of the year.

And if you're not a drinker, make it a mocktail! To do so, I suggest leaving out the Vodka and Aperol and doubling the pineapple juice. You could also get crazy and add whatever juice to the mix that you like! I think a little orange or mango or guava juice would go really well with these flavors. Yum.
