Essential Tropical Cocktails For This Summer

Tropical cocktails are the ones that give you a cool, refreshing and beachy feel during the summer times. They often dominate with Tropical fruit flavors like Pineapple, Orange, Lemon, Coconut, Passion Fruit, and more.

The only objective of these drinks is to get you away from the Scorching heat and let you relax and cool down otherwise.

Most of them are Tropical Rum Cocktails, as you all know Rum came from the Caribbean that are otherwise known as Tropical Paradise.

Let us look into some of the famous and easy to make Tropical Cocktails you can make this Summer.

Blue Hawaii:

What a lovely drink to start with! As the name suggests, this drink is Blue in color representing the color of the oceans. You can present this drink in a Tulip glass with Umbrella garnish to give a typical Hawaiian beach feel.

Ingredients: Vodka, White Rum, Blue Curacao, Lime Juice, lemon Juice, Pineapple Juice and Simple Syrup.

Creamy Coconut Margarita:

What better way to celebrate the Caribbean flavors than Coconut? This Coconut drink has Tequila and Coconut cream along with Triple Sec. Get on with it to the beach and enjoy the sultry evening.

Ingredients: Tequila, Cointreau or Triple Sec, Lime Juice, Coconut Cream

Blue Lagoon:

My personal favorite. Similar to Blue Hawaii, but lacks the Rum part.

This one adds lemonade so it is a bit sweeter than the former.

Ingredients: Vodka, Lemonade, Blue Curacao, Lemon Juice. Check out the steps to make Blue Lagoon Cocktail using these ingredients.

Rum Punch:

Like a Sunset color, this Rum Punch will definitely make you drink one, even if you are a non-drinker. With perfect sweetness, tarty and fruity, Rum Punch is surely going to give you the desired punch.

Ingredients: White Rum, Dark Rum, Grenadine, Orange Juice, Lemon Juice and Pineapple Juice


If you are from Brazil, you must already know that Capirinha is the national drink of the country.
