The Homecoming

The Homecoming

The pineapple has long been a symbol of hospitality on the East Coast. Sea Captains returning home from the West Indies would place a pineapple on their fence, an invitation to friends and neighbours to come enjoy food and drink and hear tales from their time at sea. We’re proud to keep this tradition alive with the Virga Homecoming, a warm welcome to celebrate in your home.

  • 2 ounces Virga Vodka
  • 2 chunks pineapple
  • 1 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces cranberry

Muddle the pineapple in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the Virga, pineapple and cranberry juices, ice and shake. Strain in a chilled cocktail glass or rocks glass filled with ice and garnish with a wedge of pineapple. Sociable!
