4th of july cocktail


Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4 Tall Glasses


Ingredients:

  • 3 oz Malibu Caribbean Rum

  • 3 oz Bacardi

  • 12 oz Pineapple Juice

  • 3 oz cream of coconut

  • 1 medium banana

  • Ice to desired thickness

  • 1 tsp grenadine syrup

  • 1 tsp blue Curacao

Instructions:

In a blender combine rum, Bacardi, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, banana, and ice. Blend until desired thickness, adding more ice as needed. Pour the mixture into a glass, only filling it 1/3 of the way, and then add the grenadine, stir. Fill the glass the rest of the way and add Blue Curacao to the top. Stir in Curacao with a straw or spoon submerged only an inch into the mixture (giving the striped appearance). Add a straw, garnish with pineapple, blueberries, and a cherry and enjoy.

Note: It is important that the grenadine goes in first because it sinks to the bottom whereas the Curacao will not.

Drink responsibly and Happy Fourth of July!
