If you grew up near the coast, acting like a mermaid (or merman) was probably a game you played in the pool or the ocean when you were little. As an adult, we know that’s unrealistic, but try this mermaid water cocktail to keep the dream alive!
Mermaid Water Cocktail
- 2 oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
- 2 oz coconut rum
- 6 oz pineapple juice
- 1 oz freshly-squeezed lime juice
- Blue curacao
- A splash of pineapple juice
- A lime wedge for garnish
- Mint leaves
Mix rum, pineapple juice, and lime juice in a pitcher (multiply the amounts for more) or in a glass with ice. Top off drink with extra pineapple juice. Add a splash of blue curacao to give the drink its blue-green color. Add lime slices and mint leaves for garnish. For an extra satisfying look, add an umbrella or a summer patterned paper straw!
