Add a bit of whimsy this summer with this tipsy mermaid cocktail. With layers of delightful colors and the fruity flavors of pineapple and melon, this tropical-tasting drink is a fun and beautiful adult beverage to keep you cool and refreshed.
Tipsy Mermaid Ingredients
The cocktail is a vibrant delight, featuring the star ingredient, Midori, which imparts a sweet and fruity flavor.
Complemented by white rum, pineapple juice, and blue curacao, it offers a refreshing blend of melon, pineapple, and citrus notes.
- 1 cup ice cubes (or enough to fill the glass)
- 1 ounce of Midori
- 1 ounce of white rum
- 2 ounces of pineapple juice
- 1 ounce of blue curacao
- Lime slices and maraschino cherries for garnish (optional)
The weights (depending on sugar content) of the different ingredients create the layered look. If you substitute any of the ingredients or their proportions, you will likely not get the same effect.
Substitutions And Additions
PINEAPPLE JUICE: I like to get the little mini (6-ounce) cans of pineapple juice to keep on hand in my pantry.
This way, I do not need to open a large bottle of pineapple juice if I am only using it to make a couple of cocktails.
MIDORI: If you want to switch up the flavor profile of your tipsy mermaid, consider swapping Midori with another fruit liqueur like peach schnapps or raspberry liqueur.
WHITE RUM: White rum can be replaced with a variety of other spirits for a different cocktail experience.
Try using coconut rum for a tropical coconut twist or silver tequila for a slightly bolder flavor.
Vodka can also work if you prefer a more neutral base. Remember that the choice of spirit will influence the overall character of your cocktail.
BLUE CURACAO: If you’re feeling adventurous, swap blue curacao with a different colored liqueur to give your tipsy mermaid a visually striking twist.
Orange curacao, for example, will still provide that citrusy pop but in a different hue.
How To Make This Tipsy Mermaid Recipe
Follow our easy instructions and you’ll have this stunning drink ready in no time.
STEP ONE: Fill a 12-ounce glass with ice.
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
It is essential to mix the drink precisely as directed to achieve the layered look. For example, do not pour in the blue curacao first, even though it goes on the bottom.
STEP TWO: Add the Midori, white rum, and pineapple juice to the glass. Stir well.
STEP THREE: Slowly pour the blue curacao over an upside-down spoon to direct the blue liqueur down the side of the glass.
STEP FOUR: Top with lime slices and maraschino cherries.
You can never go wrong with a paper umbrella in your drink to fancy it up.
How To Serve
Serve your tipsy mermaid punch at all your summer parties to delight your guests and keep them refreshed.
Whether you want to make it ahead of time for a gathering or have leftovers, here’s how to handle your cocktail.
MAKE AHEAD: If you want to prep in advance, you can mix the cocktail ingredients (Midori, white rum, and pineapple juice) in a shaker without ice.
Seal it tightly and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to serve, simply add ice and the blue curacao to your glass.
Pour the pre-mixed cocktail over it, and garnish as desired.
IN THE FRIDGE: We don’t recommend trying to keep leftovers of this drink as the ice will melt and water down your drink.
Serve this tropical cocktail immediately.
IN THE FREEZER: This grown-up drink must be served fresh.
