12 Ways to Eat, Drink and Decorate With Pineapple

Pineapple is so hot right now. 

Pineapples are HOT right now. Browse just about any clothing or home decor store, and you'll see this tropical fruit adorning dresses, bathing suits, pillows, rugs and more. Though they're currently having a moment, pineapples have been used as a symbol of hospitality in home design for hundreds of years. In food, their tangy taste can complement both sweet and savory dishes, and I don't need to tell you how delicious they are in cocktails — pina coladas, anyone? Satisfy your craving for this summer fruit with our pineapple-infused food and drink recipes, plus DIY pineapple-inspired decor for your home.
