    • 1 gallon cubed Ice (not crushed)
    • Garnish

  • Instructions

    1. Place pineapples and oranges in a 1.5-2 gallon drink dispenser.
    2. Pour mango cranberry juice and peach schnapps over the fruit and gently stir.
    3. In a separate pitcher, mix the white cranberry juice, orange juice and coconut rum together.
    4. Chill both containers in refrigerator until ready to serve.
    5. Before serving, fill the larger drink dispenser with ice. Pour the second layer from the smaller pitcher slowly and directly on top of the ice.
    6. Gently add some chopped pineapples and a few sliced strawberries in the center.
    7. Very gently, place sliced limes and the rest of the strawberries around the edges of the container with a large spoon or fork.
