Drinking Pink Rabbits

This is one of many posts where I guarantee reference to Pink Rabbits.  For any The National fans out there, don’t be too hopeful, this is just a smoothie recipe, but add some liquor and we can toast to the real Pink Rabbits later.

For every one else, just know Pink Rabbits is a song from the much anticipated and very excellent 6th album by The National.  My favorite band, give them a listen, they will be your favorite band too one day.

What you need

  • Pineapple, 3 rings
  • 1 Banana
  • Strawberries, a handful (approx 1 cup)
  • 6 oz Coconut Milk
  • Ice

Pile them into the blender,  pulse, blend.


Observe the lovely pink color and sweet aroma.  Now top with pineapple stalks, two each for rabbit ears.  Sit in a fainting chair, enjoy. (or add tequila – get buzzed, Matt Berninger style)

  2. I was wondering what Pink Rabbits were since I got Trouble will Find me. I picked this up since they are playing Austin City Limits and wanted to listen to them. Love this album, not going to have to get more of thier stuff! Thanks for the post!

    • Glad you liked it! The National is and will always be my favorite band 🙂
      Now I can’t claim this is *actually* what the drink Pink Rabbits is, I wouldn’t want to steal the ambiguity from them, but it is a fun interpretation.
