  3. Mix coleslaw, vinegar, salt, pepper, mayo, and sugar until combined in a bowl

How to make pulled pork at home: You will need pork shoulder or butt. Rub the pork with your favorite spices like garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Then, place the meat in a slow cooker or oven and cook for 6-9 hours until it is tender. You can use a pressure cooker for faster cooking. Once it’s ready, shred the pork.

What to Drink: The Chi Chi

Our friend Adam Wild crafted the perfect drink to make your crowd go wild. The Chi Chi is as easy to make as it is to drink and has the familiar tropical flavors of pineapple and coconut, but it is a lot lighter and brighter than a piña colada, so you can knock them back in all four quarters.

 The Recipe:

  • 5 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz cream of coconut
  • 2 oz vodka
  • (Optional: 1/4-1/2 oz lemon juice)

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a tall glass and top with crushed ice. Give it a fun tiki garnish and stick in a metal straw to save the sea turtles.
