You only need 3 ingredients to make this sweet, refreshing, and deliciously creamy tropical pink mocktail, a non-alcoholic and fun fruity drink everyone can enjoy this summer.
Today I’m bringing you a fun and family-friendly drink that everyone in my house just loves! Often, when you think of cool and fruity drinks the only ones that come to mind contain alcohol. But there is absolutely no reason why those of us who don’t drink alcohol have to miss out on paper umbrellas and the fun drink experience!
This is a drink that my son and I whipped up and I dubbed it the “tropical pink”. It uses three simple ingredients and is always a favorite with kids and adults alike. No blender is needed, just something to stir with and a straw when you’re finished! I even took the ingredients for these to a pool party recently and set us up a little family-friendly bar. This pink mocktail is so sweet and refreshing, thanks to the grenadine and soda. But the pina colada mix gives it a deliciously creamy edge, making it the perfect summer drink.
Ready to sit back with a cool non-alcoholic drink in your hands? Let’s go!
- Lemon-lime carbonated “soda” (in Alabama we just call that 7-up or Sprite, despite the brand)
- Pina Colada mix
- Grenadine syrup
How to Make Tropical Pink Mocktail
Put some ice in a glass and add the grenadine.
Then add the pina colada mix (exact measurements are at the bottom of this post) and half of your lemon-lime soda. Stir just until well combined.
Add in the rest of your soda, pop in a straw, and enjoy!
Simple as that!

Can I make this into a tropical pink cocktail instead?
Yes, if you want to turn this pink mocktail into a cocktail, simply stir in 1.5 to 2 ounces of your favorite spirit. You can use gin or vodka, but white rum pairs perfectly with the pina colada mix.
