Turtle bay Cocktail Spicy Pineapple

Do you like it hot? It’s time to spice up your life with our signature Spicy Pineapple cocktail. This drink combines sweet and juicy Hawaiian pineapple with fiery jalapeno. The zesty concoction will have your taste buds dancing the tango. Not to mention, it’s packed with nutrients.

First of all, Pineapple is chock full of several health benefits due to its nutrient content. It contains bromelain, protein, carbohydrates, sugar, and soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. The vitamins in these fruits include vitamin A, vitamin C, beta-carotene, thiamin, vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B6, and folate, according to the USDA National Nutrient Database.

Jalapenos are also packed with health benefits. An average jalapeno contains about 150 mg of potassium which is 7% of the amount you need each day. They also contain magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, manganese, and copper. All these minerals support the health of red blood cells, the function of the nervous system, and the development of strong bones. Jalapenos also contain vitamin E and a lot of antioxidants. These compounds can eliminate the free radicals which have accumulated in the body.

Order the Spicy Pineapple at The Point Sunset & Pool Bar and sip it while watching the surf.
