Last Updated on June 12, 2023 by Leah Hall

We used grilled pineapple juice in this Tropical Whiskey Cocktail to give a bit of smoky flavor to combine with rye whiskey, tropical flavors and yellow chartreuse.


Let’s take a sip of this Tropical Whiskey Cocktail and sit in the sun as tiki flavors meet with warming rye whiskey! This makes us daydream about relaxing on a tropical beach, you?

This Tropical Whiskey Cocktail is perfect for lazy days, ones where you can lounge around and sip on cocktails. Rye whiskey, grilled pineapple juice, fresh lime, cinnamon syrup and yellow chartreuse are shaken together for this tropical drink.

We combined the flavors of spicy rye whiskey and grilled pineapple juice in a shaker. If you haven’t made grilled pineapple juice, you need to. Regular pineapple juice is fine, but we did call this the Hawaiian Bonfire cocktail for a reason, it plays really well with the rye and gives some great smoky undertones.

The rye whiskey becomes an undertone and the yellow chartreuse liqueur is a great addition of herbal notes to the grilled pineapple juice. To this we added the tartness of fresh lime juice, a dash of sweetness with cinnamon simple syrup, which is a staple in tropical cocktails. And to finish it off, we used a couple dashes of 1821 Havana and Leather bitters. If you don’t have these fancy bitters, regular Angostura Aromatic Bitters will do. (I just sounded like Ina Garten, didn’t I?)


We love the flavor combos in this Hawaiian Bonfire. It reminded us a lot of some flavors we had on our trip to Hawaii the other year, and we were here for it!

Tropical Whiskey Cocktail for a Crowd

If you happen to be hosting a party this summer, you can easily make this for a crowd. Make the large batch version in advance and just keep it refrigerated to keep it cold. Don’t add the bitters early tho! When you are ready to serve, just stir, add the bitters and pour in glasses filled with ice. You can easily garnish these with some more pineapple slices, or even mint! Easily served in a pitcher or drink dispenser! Just don’t add ice to the pre-made mix, as it will water it down.


If you are wanting to keep it cool, add ice in a ziploc bag and place in the pitcher or dispenser, or just keep in the fridge!
