Directions

Step 1 –Place 1 cup of the chopped pineapple and the orange slices in a 1 1/2-2-gallon drink dispenser.

Step 2 –Pour the cranberry-mango juice and the peach schnapps over the fruit and gently stir together.

Step 3 –In a separate pitcher, mix the white cranberry-strawberry juice, the orange juice, and the coconut rum together.

Step 4 –Chill both containers in the fridge until ready to serve.

Step 5 –Just before serving, fill the drink dispenser with the cubed ice.

Step 6 –Slowly, pour the white cranberry mixture directly on top of the ice, so that it layers on top of the cranberry-mango mixture instead of blending together.

Step 7 –Gently add the remaining chopped pineapples and about 1/2 of the sliced strawberries to the center of the drink dispenser.

Step 8 –Place the lime slices and the remaining sliced strawberries very gently around the edges of the container.
