MFFO-Jitos! The Perfect Luau Cocktail!

So proud to have been a part of the MFFO Calendar Luau last week!  So in keeping with the Luau theme, and a generous donation from Dole, we concocted this delish cocktail…  And just had to share the recipe!



  • 4 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 3/4 oz. coconut rum
  • 3/4 oz. white rum
  • 1/2 oz. ginger simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • fresh mint leaves
  • 1 oz. sparkling mineral water 

For MFFO-jito: Muddle mint in a glass. Add ice. Mix all ingredients except the mineral water and pour over ice. Top with mineral water.  Garnish with lime wedge.

Need to make a large batch for a party?  No worries!

  • 46 oz. can Dole Pineapple juice
  • 1 c + 1 Tbs coconut rum
  • 1 c + 1 Tbs white rum
  • 2/3 c ginger simple syrup
  • 2/3 c lime juice
  • bunch of mint leaves
  • mineral water

 Ginger Simple Syrup

  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 c water
  • 1 oz fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced or chopped

 Make the ginger simple syrup: Mix all ingredients in a non-reactive pot. Bring to a boil, stirring so that sugar dissolves.  Turn off heat and allow to cool, steeping ginger in syrup. Strain. Refrigerate.
