Alcoholic Drink Recipes

I love creating alcoholic drink recipes. Especially a summer cocktail. I knew that this mermaid water had to be blue alcoholic drinks!


The Summer Cocktail Shot


Blue Hawaiian Punch

If you saw my Mermaid Popsicles {Fun Summer Frozen Treat} then you know that a blue Hawaiian punch is an inspiration behind these mermaid summer recipes. However, I decided to to use a blue Hawaiian punch recipe! I decided to make my own blue Hawaiian punch that was shimmery!

Fun Summer Cocktail

Last year,  I did Unicorn Kisses Cocktail {Whimsical And Purple Cocktail}. That alcoholic drink recipe shimmers. So for this cocktail shot, I decided to make it similar so that these blue alcoholic drinks glistens like a mermaid’s tail!

Blue Alcoholic Drinks

Blue luster dust is the secret to these blue alcoholic drinks. I wanted these blue shots to have that shimmery liquid look. I knew if I was doing mermaid water, blue had to be the primary color for blue alcoholic drinks after all!

How can I transform a blue cocktail into the mermaid dreams cocktail? I knew the shimmer was good for this blue Hawaiian punch recipe, but what else can I do to this nautically inspired drink?

Coconut Flavor

To create a taste that I felt was a summer cocktail, I went with Hawaiian Punch’s White Water Wave. I added the blue luster dust to make this a blue Hawaiian punch recipe. This blue Hawaiian punch has a coconut pineapple-flavored. Perfect for a summer cocktail!

What would pair well with coconut and give this mermaid dreams recipe that mermaid look? Then I spotted pastel pearlized chocolate Sixlets. My version of mermaid drinks was coming together!


Chocolate Pearls

Mermaids wear pearls, right? Plus coconut and chocolate go well together. So I dropped the chocolate pearls into the shot glass.

Mermaid Tail

Something interesting happened that gave this cocktail shot that it the mermaid look I wanted. The pastel candy coating on the pearls started to blend in the drink to create a pretty green. It looks like a mermaids tail only in a shot glass!

The Mermaid Dreams was created and it was wonderful! A cocktail isn’t a cocktail without alcohol. So for this alcoholic drink recipe, I use whipped cream vodka.

I am in mermaid heaven with this summer cocktail. Mermaid Dreams is so delicious. This blue Hawaiian punch recipe is the perfect summer drink!
