Since it is almost summer and extremely hot and humid here in DC, I decided to make a tropical drink. There are a ton of tropical fish bowl drinks out there, but I stumbled across one that fits the bill. It is tasty, it is blue and it is tropical in flavor. All of the key factors in a great tropical drink. So if you can’t go to the beach this summer, bring the beach to your backyard.
I used a rounded glass, but feel free to scale this up to a fishbowl.
Fish Bowl Cocktail
- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz blue curacao
- 1 oz coconut rum
- 1 oz sweet and sour
- 2 oz pineapple juice
- 3 oz lemon lime soda
Fill a glass or fish bowl with ice (shaved ice for the best effect) and then add the ingredients. Lightly stir and serve.
Garnish with a mini-parasol, lemons, limes, pineapple chunks or whatever you have lying around.
