  1. Ooo I love the idea of a bit of warmth from a bit of vanilla flavor here! I would have never thought to combine pineapple and vanilla but I’m drooling over the idea right now!

  2. I LOOOOVE a good vodka collins. LOVE. I’m so glad you posted this recipe. It reminded me to make one! I’ll give this one a try. Also, have a blast in Hawaii. We are getting married there in April and I can’t wait!!

    • Hawaiian, fruity cocktails can sometimes be a bit too sweet for me too. That’s why I like adding soda water to this one – It cuts down on the sweetness a bit, and makes it extra refreshing!

  3. Fun!!! I am planning a trip to Barcelona in the spring! I’ll need to check out your posts! Have an amazing time in Hawaii. Love the Thanksgiving vacation plan.

  4. This looks perfectly tropical and an ideal way to flash back to summer during the fall months. Your vacation plans sound amazing. We typically go visit family, and while lovely, is stressful and expensive. I think I’ll have to do a trip to the tropics next year and just have my family meet me there.

  5. STOP IT, that drink is GORGEOUS!
    And HAWAII!?!?!?!? WAHOOOOOO! I feel you on the weather slump and needing to get out of dodge! We typically leave in January or Feb. I can usually hold out throughout the fall season with all of the holidays, especially now with littles. But seriously, come January I NEEEEEED sun.
    I can’t wait to hear about your Hawaii trip! That place is seriously my Disneyland. Happiest place on earth!

  6. Hi Erin!, I really love good vodka collins and your recipe came super in handy for me. I’ll give it a try for sure. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your great success!

  7. 5 stars
    great cocktail, my pineapple vodka cocktail is just that, vodka plus pineapple juice, not very elevated, but Chambord and vanilla extract is, so thank you!
