If you’d like to give your piña colada an extra punch, then the Rocket Fuel cocktail is sure to send you “to the moon.” Originating on New York’s Fire Island, this tasty tropical drink has plenty of pineapple juice, coconut, rum…and then some! Indeed, this drink adds two alcoholic ingredients to the classic piña colada mix, which makes the Rocket Fuel way more “fiery” versus the original.

To help cool your Rocket Fuel’s intense effects, please don’t forget to add a dropperful of Tribe CBD oil. While it may be hard to pick up CBD’s calming properties underneath all that alcohol, please rest assured this hemp cannabinoid is having an effect!

Tribe’s CBD Rocket Fuel Cocktail Recipe 

A Pumped-Up Piña Colada — Tribe's Rocket Fuel Cocktail

Amaretto is a well-known spirit in cocktail circles, but there are still some misconceptions surrounding this Italian spirit. For instance, a lot of people believe amaretto always has traces of almond oil. While amaretto has a distinctive “almondy” flavor, that doesn’t mean it must have almonds. In fact, many classic amaretto manufacturers use apricot pits.

It’s also significant to distinguish between “amaretto” and “amaros.” The latter term refers to a category of herbal liqueurs that have a distinctly “bitter” flavor. Indeed, the word “amaro” literally translates to “bitter.” On the other hand, “amaretto” means “a little bitter,” which helps explain its sweeter, almondy flavor profile.

While we’re on the subject of almonds, we’d recommend trying Rocket Fuel with a dash of almond milk. Even if you’re not into the non-dairy fad, the flavors in this alt milk enhance amaretto’s naturally nutty flavor.


  • 2 oz dark rum
  • 2 oz amaretto
  • 1 oz coconut cream
  • ~ 5 oz pineapple juice
  • ½ oz of your preferred milk
  • ~ ¼ cup crushed ice
  • ½ oz 151 rum
  • 1 dropperful Tribe CBD oil
  • Cherry or pineapple slice, optional


  • Put all of the ingredients except the 151 rum and cherry into a blender
  • Blitz until all ingredients are smooth
  • Pour into a pre-chilled Tiki-themed glass
  • Pour 151 rum down a straw with a liquor pourer
  • Top with a cherry, if desired

If you’re not a cocktail connoisseur, you may be wondering what the heck you’d do with a bottle of amaretto…besides making more Rocket Fuel drinks, of course! Well, it turns out there are many non-cocktail ways you could put amaretto to good use. For instance, many Italians enjoy sprinkling a little amaretto on top of a creamy bowl of ice cream.

For those of you who are into baking, there are plenty of dessert recipes that include a dash of amaretto. A quick Google search will bring up dozens of mouth-watering treats like amaretto biscotti, cheesecakes, and cookies.

On the subject of baking, please don’t forget you can use Tribe’s CBD oil in DIY edibles infusions. We’ve heard from customers who’ve mixed their CBD oil into a surprising array of items like salad vinaigrettes, brownies, and butter. Please don’t be afraid to add a spritz of Tribe CBD into your next edible adventure!

Just How Potent Is Tribe CBD Oil?

It’s clear that Rocket Fuel is an intense cocktail, but what about Tribe’s CBD oil? Well, our standard 15 mL vial of CBD oil contains a generous 900 mg of CBD. However, we also offer a 50 mL container of CBD oil with 3,000 mg of hemp-extracted CBD. Please keep in mind Tribe’s CBD oil is a full-spectrum product, which means it will contain plenty of secondary cannabinoids and terpenes. Many people believe these additional compounds enhance CBD’s therapeutic properties.

Of course, we always send our CBD oil to third-party labs to verify there’s ≤ 0.3 percent THC. Tribe CBD also works with some of the most respected American hemp farmers who produce exceptional organic crops. Please click here to find out more about our high-quality control standards.
