A homemade take on the famous pineapple martini at The Capital Grille, Stoli Doli is incredibly easy to make and easy to drink.

You guys know that I am not much of a drinker. Sure, I’ll have a drink here and there, and I have definitely been known to make infused vodkas as holiday gifts for friends, but I just don’t love a lot of alcoholic drinks.

But a few years ago, during a shopping trip with a friend, I discovered a drink that is smooth, refreshing, and downright delicious.

It was during my first dining experience at The Capital Grille that I tried the Stoli Doli. Let me tell you, if anything could change my opinion on cocktails, it would be this drink.

While the food at The Capital Grille was fantastic, the real star of the show came before my friend and I had ever taken a bite. The restaurant’s signature cocktail – the Stoli Doli – immediately stole our hearts.

After gushing to our server that night about how awesome it was, he convinced me to order just one more and spilled the details as to how this drink is made.

This drink is basically Stolichnaya vodka that is poured over sliced, fresh Dole pineapple – hence the Stoli Doli name. Our server said to place the pineapple in a jug, pour a bottle of vodka over it to cover the pineapple, and then let it sit for about 12 days.

The infused vodka is then shaken with ice and served straight-up in a martini glass. The resulting cocktail is sweet, full of flavor and goes down easy.

It might be borderline dangerous that Stoli Doli is every bit as easy to make as it is easy to drink.

I definitely recommend making your pineapple vodka with the best fresh pineapple you can find, though. Using a super sweet pineapple will make all the difference for the final drink.

Infusing the vodka in a container with a spigot, such as a large drink dispenser, will also make it easier to transfer the Stoli Doli to bottles later.

We’ve made infused vodka recipes before, including Pecan Pie Vodka and Mulling Spiced Vodka, but this pineapple vodka is possibly the easiest of the bunch.

Just cut the pineapple into chunks and pour the vodka over it. I let mine infuse at room temperature for 12-14 days before straining it and pouring it into bottles.

Pro-tip: Don’t save the pineapple after infusing! All of the flavor is gone, so just discard it. Ask me how I know…

While The Capital Grille serves theirs straight up in a martini glass, I often serve it on over ice in a rocks glass. If the Stoli Doli is too strong for you as-is, you can also add in a splash of pineapple juice to temper it a bit.

Whether you’re looking for a cocktail to beat the summer heat or you’ve been nominated to bring beverages to your next cookout, I’m fairly certain the Stoli Doli will be a huge hit!

Just be forewarned and drink responsibly! These seemingly sweet and unassuming cocktails can pack a pretty big punch!

    Once the infused vodka is strained, freeze the pineapple chunks! Throw one or two in the drink. They are extremely potent!

    1. Jamie says:

      Ha! I bet they are super potent!

    Any advice

    1. Jamie says:

      Thanks so much for stopping by, June! I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Plastic can hold onto old flavors/odors, but if it is newer and very clean, you’ll probably be ok. Happy Baking!

    So my husband and I didn’t have the patience to wait 12-14 days so I made it on a Friday and by Sunday we were drinking it and let me tell you it was DELICIOUS!! I wouldn’t have wanted it to infuse anymore than that. 

    1. Jamie says:

      So happy to hear you enjoyed the vodka, Chelsea! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your feedback!

    the pineapple chunks are great to through in the freezer and then put into frozen drinks. I make chi-chi’s which is basically a pina coloda made with vodka. There is a ton of vodka left in the pineapple and yes the pinapple tastes awful on it’s own – but who wants to let all that vodka go to waste? Not me!

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Lisa! I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Happy Baking!

    I’ve made several batches of Stoli Doli and it is very simple.  I use a beverage dispenser (glass only), stack fresh cut ripe pineapple “chunky” slices around the sides of the dispenser until the dispenser is full (I leave the center empty). Fill with a decent brand of vodka (top shelf vodka is not necessary buy I wouldn’t go extremely cheap) until all of the pineapple is covered.  Let sit at room temperature for 12 – 14 days.  I have mashed the pineapple in a strainer since the pineapple seems to absorb much of the vodka and add this to the mixture.  Mashing the pineapple gives the Stoli Doli a stronger pineapple taste and a sweeter taste.  Simple syrup can be added to taste if you like a sweeter drink.

  8. Jean says:

    We have been making these for years after having our first pineapple martini at Alan Wong’s in Honolulu. They actually measure the sugar content until is where they want it to be.

      I’ve used top shelf vodka and actually prefer to start out with an inexpensive pineapple vodka to infuse. I’ve ran the vodka thru a couple of pineapples and still prefer to begin with pineapple flavored vodka.  I think our pineapples, generally from Costa Rica aren’t as sweet at the Hawaiian ones.  

    The leftover pineapple pieces from infusing are TERRIBLE tasting, yikes!  Don’t try to get every last drop out of those pieces by crushing them or squeezing them. It will add that terrible flavor to your drink.   Lesson learned.

    1. Jamie says:

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Jean! I appreciate you taking the time to comment. And I agree – the leftover pineapple is awful! Happy Baking!

  9. Stevie says:

    It may seem like cheating, but I get the best results in both flavor and color by mashing the pineapple chunks somewhat as I add them to the vodka. (Doing this, 1 pineapple + 1L good plain vodka is the perfect recipe and easy drinking on its own.) Based on many of the comments here, I can’t help but wonder if that may be a restaurant trick – just strain it, then add a fresh, pretty batch of fruit for display.

    1. Jamie says:

      Love this idea, Stevie! I bet you’re right!

  10. Michael Derby says:

    My friend just tried to start making this last night. He didn’t have enough vodka to cover the pineapple completely so he used about 10+ oz of water to cover it. I think it might be bad to use water. Any thoughts?

    1. Jamie says:

      Hi, Michael! I’m not really certain now this will affect the flavor, bit I’m think it be fine, just a little less strong. Enjoy!
