When these primary ingredients intermingle, they offer a refreshing and somewhat unexpected flavor profile, ideally suited for a lowball glass. The addition of grenadine not only provides a hint of pomegranate sweetness but also lends the drink a vibrant red hue, from which the cocktail takes its playful name. The Red Pineapple serves as a simple yet inviting choice for those looking to enjoy a fruity cocktail with a subtle whiskey backdrop.

4/5

Red Pineapple is a delightful play of robust whiskey against the tropical brightness of pineapple juice, with a dash of grenadine for sweetness. A choice pick for those who favor whiskey in a more playful, fruity context.
