Instinct Yellow Pinap Juice

Who says Pinap Juice is just for Pokémon? We made our own Pinap Juice, inspired by Pokémon GO's Team Instinct, and you can too.

Team Instinct is the black sheep of the Pokémon GO teams. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; it just means that the select few who have joined team captain Spark’s movement are all the more committed to following their gut instinct. With Zapdos, the legendary bird of electricity, as their mascot, Team Instinct’s cocktail electrifies. Made with a base of gold rum, sweetened with pineapple juice, sharpened with chartreuse and garnished with a lightning bolt lemon peel, the Instinct Yellow is the perfect, zingy drink for those scarce intuitive individuals. If you really want to up the shock value of the drink, lightly rim the glass with crushed Warheads or Pop Rocks to deliver a surge of electricity with every sip.
