Tropical Pineapple Moonshine 

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes

8-ounce mason jars


  • Pineapple Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 vanilla pods, sliced down the center
  • 1 8-ounce can coconut water
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • Tropical Pineapple Moonshine
  • 1 pineapple (Can use 46-ounce can of pineapple chunks)
  • 750 ML Everclear or plain moonshine
  • Tropical Pineapple Cocktail
  • 4 oz Tropical Pineapple Moonshine
  • 4 oz club soda
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • Crushed ice


Pineapple Simple Syrup

Combine pineapple juice, vanilla pods, coconut water, and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.

Stir until the sugar dissolves, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Remove the vanilla pods. Set aside and cool syrup.

Tropical Pineapple Moonshine

Break down pineapple and slice into cubes if you're using a whole pineapple. Add cubes to a large bowl and mash with the back of wooden spoon. If you have muddling tools, you can use those to get the job done.

Add moonshine and Pineapple Simple Syrup to the bowl. Stir to combine.

Portion into 8-ounce mason jars. Split pods into equal segments so each jar has a vanilla pod inside.

Store in a cool, dark place. If your pantry is out of direct sunlight, that's the perfect place for this infusion.

Tropical Pineapple Cocktail

Combine Tropical Pineapple Moonshine and club soda in a glass. Add a splash of lemon juice and crushed ice. Stir to combine, and sip wholeheartedly.


As we always say, the longer a moonshine infusion sits, the better it gets. This infusion will store up to a year in a cool, dark place, but please imbibe responsibly.
