Hey Foodie (and cocktail loving) Friends, it’s officially Summer!!! Welcome to our seventh edition of a brand new series here at Tallahassee Foodies – Boozy Tuesdays.
As the name suggests, every Tuesday this Summer, we’ll be serving up a new summer cocktail recipe to accompany those fresh and tasty dishes you’ll be making at home all season!
To amp up this series and take advantage of what Tallahassee has to offer, I’ve enlisted the help of our favorite pro local bartenders that know EXACTLY how to whip up a custom cocktail.
When I pitched this summer beverage idea to a few local establishments, Charlie Park jumped in and offered up the first 8 rounds of our “fun in the sun” beverage series!
What do I know about this “new kid on the block” food and bev rooftop establishment? They are already well known for their expertly crafted cocktails, brought to you by their very own general manager Derek Captain and bar manager Dalton Bedard.

Inspired by thoughts of a sunny day on a coastal shoreline, “Pineapples in Paradise” is one of those beverages that packs a punch — vacation style.
By incorporating fresh citrus juice and bubbles with a rather boozy yet refreshing template, this drink hits all the marks for a lounge-chair libation. The softer notes of the yellow chartreuse blend impeccably with the tropical flavours given from the pineapple rum, perfectly rounded off with a touch of aperol, a hint of citrus, and a bit of effervescence.
Using all store bought ingredients, “Pineapples in Paradise” is easy to replicate and even easier to appreciate.
Pineapples in Paradise
- 1.5 oz Plantation Pineapple Rum
- 1 oz Yellow Chartreuse
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- .75 oz Aperol
- Dash of Agave nectar
- To make, combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake until sufficiently chilled. Strain into a pineapple glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple fronds.
