Drink in a Pineapple Cup The Westin Ka'anapali, Maui Everything tastes better in a pineapple! While, yes, this is a Mai Tai, you can order one of these whole fresh pineapple cups with the beverage of your choice–juice, virgin cocktail or other alcoholic libation, or even a smoothie! I refilled mine with ice water several times. I just couldn’t keep my hands off of it. Walking around with it, holding it with both hands like a precious island treat, brought joy to my heart. Sipping from a straw stuck into a whole fresh pineapple puts a big smile on everyone’s face–try it you’ll see. It’s instant Hawaiian happiness!

My question: how hard is it to hollow out one of these pineapples without totally butchering the fruit inside? Is there a special knife they use? I must return and inquire at the bar there soon!!! Maui no ka ‘oi! ❤
