What to mix with pineapple Vodka?

My GF bought a bottle, and mixed it with Pineapple Juice. Way to pineapply and too sweet. Not good. She wants something that will contrast and make a nice cocktail, maybe some other fruit juice.

Vodka tonic has always been my go-to. While plain with lime is the stand-by, whenever I've used flavored vodkas it's a nice flavor, not too sweet, and just the nice subtle flavor that was meant with stuff like Absolut makes. I wouldn't generally mix a flavored vodka with fruit juice personally.

My go-to addition for vodka is ice. A couple cubes in a rocks glass, healthy splash of vodka, sip appreciatively. If the first sip is a tad harsh, rest assured that the ice is melting.

Ice, a blender, and a straw.

Stan - can you clarify. Was the pineapple juice poured into the bottle with the vodka, so separating them would be difficult?

I think a few of the replies are assuming it was mixed after being poured, and you still have pristine vodka available.

No, it's pineapple flavored vodka. Don't ask how, we probably don't want to know.

Nothing else too sweet. Ginger ale is really good, and I like to add just a splash of grenadine for pretty pretty.

Coconut milk or juice, sure. Instant vodka pina colada.

A "Fauxito" of sorts: muddle some mint leaves and add pineapple vodka and club soda, with or without lime juice.

Cranberry juice

Raspberry puree* and seltzer.

Heck, just seltzer, for that matter.

*Dang it. Prince song stuck in head now.

Midori would blend nicely, I'd think.

Orange-banana juice, a touch of drapefruit juice for tartness, and ice. Call it an "Oscar Wilde."

Well, if we're naming our drinks, vodka poured over two ice cubes is a "Putin".

Vodka surreptitiously added to a bottle of diet green iced tea is a "Cry For Help".

White wine, limoncello, pineapple chunks and diced lemon (peel and all). Fruity white sangria. It's healthy if you eat the fruit.
