This tropical Sunshine Drink is a copycat version of the Buckboard Bash that I had while I was in Branson at the Dolly's Stampede. You are going to love how easy it is to make this non-alcoholic delicious drink.
During the summertime, my daughter and I are always about making fun drinks to enjoy on the back porch while we watch our hummingbirds flutter about.
While I was in Branson recently, we went to Dolly's stampede and we had the most amazing drink ever — a Buckboard Bash. It was a simple and easy drink made with Sprite, Pineapple juice, and grenadine syrup. It was the tastiest drink that I have ever put in my mouth.
I knew the minute I came home that I was going to try and recreate this myself. Now — mine is not exactly like theirs, which is why I called mine a tropical sunshine drink. The colors together look just like a beautiful sunset getting ready to happen.
How to Make a Tropical Sunshine Drink
This drink will take you literally two minutes to make.
Fill your glass with ice.
Start by adding in 1/2 glass of Sprite. I say 1/2 a glass because no matter how tall or how short your glass is, it will be equal parts Sprite and Pineapple juice.
After you add in your 1/2 glass of Sprite, top it off with 1/2 a glass of Pineapple juice. Now — this is my husband's favorite way to drink this.
He is not a fan of Grenadine syrup so he just drinks Pineapple juice and Sprite together. I like the Sour Cherry flavor of the Grenadine syrup to mine.
After adding in the Pineapple juice, take the Grenadine Syrup (I bought mine online from Amazon — it is the Torani Brand). Just a splash is all you need to add that perfect Sunshine color to the drink.
Now, add a straw and you are ready to go with the most gorgeous drink on the planet.

As I said, it's simple and easy. Now you can make a fun and festive drink for when you have company over and want to impress them with your non-alcoholic beverage-making skills.
