Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil Club

Santiago Slush

Pineapple Santiago Slush

Olive oil, especially one with a sweeter flavor profile, pairs well with creamy ingredients like cream of coconut. Pineapple juice gives the cocktail zing, and a single leaf of fresh basil adds an herbal grace note. Very refreshing on a warm day! Garnish with a fresh pineapple spear, if desired.


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, preferably mild
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened cream of coconut, such as Coco Real or Coco Lopez
  • 1.5 ounces rum
  • 5 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 fresh basil leaf
  • 2 ice cubes


Combine all the ingredients in the jar of a blender and mix on high until combined and frothy. Pour into a Spanish chato or other short glass. Garnish, if desired, with a sprig of basil.

Makes 1 drink, but can be multiplied as desired
