THE BAR IS OPEN




Create an Island Paradise with Tropical Drink Recipes

Non-Alcoholic Tropical Drinks
Easy Hawaiian Punch (Serves 15-20)
1.5 Quarts Orange Juice
1 Quart Pineapple Juice
1 Liter Lemon-Lime Soda
4 oz (shots) Grenadine
Sliced fruit of your choice

Combine the liquid ingredients in large bowl, garnish with sliced fruit and chill with ice or the refrigerator. Adults can easily add a little “punch” to this recipe.

Tropical Plantation Ice Tea
1 Pitcher of your favorite Ice Tea
½ Quart Pineapple Juice
1 Pineapple sliced lengthways

Stir the Pineapple Juice into the Iced Tea and garnish with the Pineapple “spears”. You may remove the skin of the Pineapple or leave for that “rustic look”.


Traditional Tropical Drink Recipes

Mai Tai
Invented by the famous Trader Vic in 1944, “Mai Tai” means literally “the very best “ in the Tahitian language.

1 oz Light Rum
1 oz Dark Rum
1 oz Orange Curacao or Grand Marnier (Triple Sec can substitute)
½ oz Amaretto (Almond liqueur)
1 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1 Dash lime juice
1 Dash Grenadine

Shake well and pour over ice. Garnish with a Cherry and Orange slice if available. Don’t forget the paper umbrella!

Piña Colada
Meaning “Strained Coconut” this island mainstay is actually believed to have been invented by Puerto Rican bartender Ramon Marrero in 1954. Marrero set out to capture all the flavors of Puerto Rico in one glass by combining Pineapple, Coconut and Rum.

4 oz Pina Colada Mix (Or 1 part Crème de Coconut and 2 parts Pineapple Juice)
1 oz Light Rum
1 Cup Ice
1 oz Half and Half or Milk (For a creamier version. Optional)

Combine ingredients in a blender or mix well and enjoy on the rocks. Garnish with a cherry and pineapple. Don’t forget the paper umbrella!

Chi Chi
Simply substitute Vodka for Rum in the above Pina Colada recipe to create this Hawaiian spin-off.

Blue Hawaiian
This cocktail was probably inspired by the 1961 film Blue Hawaii starring Elvis Presley.

1 oz Light Rum
1 oz Blue Curacao
3 oz Pina Colada Mix (Or 1 part Crème de Coconut and 2 parts Pineapple Juice)
1 Cup Ice

Combine ingredients in a blender or mix well and enjoy on the rocks. Garnish with a cherry and pineapple. Don’t forget the paper umbrella!

Tropical Itch
This modern cocktail is served with a backscratcher in the glass. If you cannot get your hands on Lilikoi (passion fruit) juice, just substitute a mix of your favorites.

1oz Vodka
1oz Light Rum
1/2 oz Orange Curacao or Grand Marnier (Triple Sec will substitute)
3 - 4 oz. Passion Fruit Juice (Or get creative!)

Shake well and pour over ice. Garnish with fruit and the backscratcher!

Lime Daiquiri (Straight Up)
This legendary libation originated in the Cuban village of the same name sometime around 1900.

1.5 oz Light Rum
1 oz Lime Juice
1 tsp sugar
1 cup ice
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri
The modern version of this Cuban classic. Feel free to substitute Banana instead of Strawberry for a great twist.

1.5 oz Light Rum
1 oz Lime Juice
3 oz Fresh Strawberries (Or Bananas)
1 tsp sugar
1 cup ice

Blend ingredients thoroughly. Serve in a glass with sugar on the rim or top with whipped cream and a cherry.

Mojito
Another Cuban creation that has gained popularity recently, Mojitos were invented in a popular Havana restaurant called La Bodeguita del Medio. The name Mojito supposedly comes from an African word “Mojo” which means magic spell.

2 oz Light Rum
1 Splash Soda
1 Splash Ginger Ale
2 Leaves Mint
2 Wedges Lime
2 oz Simple Syrup (2 tsp Sugar)
Mash lime wedges, mint, and sugar syrup together. Add this to a shaker with rum and ice. Shake and strain into glass. Top with soda and ginger ale.

I'm partial to Guinness Stout and Tanqueray gin when I drink, but in a pinch, I'll drink Busch Beer or dark rum. Don't like girlie drinks...
