When you’re wishing you could feel the ocean’s breeze on a hot summer day, this Mermaid Rum Punch is just what you’ll want to make!

We’ve made a lot of rum drinks for you in the past, but this fun ocean blue rum punch might be one of the prettiest for sure! It’s not often that you can say you’re drinking mermaid punch right? This makes me wish I was back in beautiful Turks & Caicos for sure!

I would love to make a few pitchers of these mermaid drinks for a party or girl’s day out. If you like piña coladas, then you’ll love this new frozen drink. I have a few friends with summer birthdays and will definitely be making them!

Easy Ocean Blue Drink

To go along with it’s name, we definitely wanted this mermaid drink to look like a blue tropical ocean. Since this is mostly made of frozen lemonade, the blue look comes by adding Blue Curacao liqueur. Blue Curacao is made of citrus which gives it more of an orange lemon flavor. If you prefer your drink to taste more like a traditional piña colada, omit the Blue Curacao. You could also add a tablespoon of blueberry puree on the top for a similar blue ocean effect.

Mermaid Rum Punch Party Tips:

  • To add more flavor with less ice, which can water down the drink, freeze the banana and pineapple juice ahead of time.
  • Want the blue effect, but don’t have Blue Curacao? You can aways add blueberry puree. Or mix a few drops of blue food coloring into your blender when mixing.
  • Serve with blue drinking straws and and nautical shell cocktail napkins.
  • Love the seashell coasters in the photos? You can click here to find them on Amazon.
  • I love glass cups so you can see the blue swirled drink, but these Mermaid Squad cups are super cute and perfect for when you’re traveling or at the pool.

Passion fruit is a type of tropical fruit grown all over the world. It has a hard, colorful rind and a juicy, seed-filled center. Passion fruit is a rich source of antioxidants and nutrients, especially fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A.

Diets rich in these nutrients have been linked with a lower risk of diseases like heart disease and diabetes. So not only is this tropical drink delicious, but it’s good for your heart!

What is Aperol?

What is Aperol you ask? Well, I had a hard time finding it because it’s so popular right now, but there was ONE bottle left in my local liquor store. I was excited to whip up some of these simple skinny cocktails for you!

Aperol is made in Northern Italy with only 11 percent alcohol. It’s a deep orange color and tastes slightly bitter with a hint of sweet. It tastes like a mix of oranges and grapefruit. I read where it also contains rhubarb. Adding it with Prosecco and a splash of sparkling water makes this refreshing very trendy Aperol Spritz!

How to Make an Aperol Spritz

This is the basic recipe for an Aperol Spritz. If you like sweet drinks, I’m warning you that it’s very bitter. Feel free to add a splash of simple syrup or sugar.

I wanted to keep mine low calorie, so just squeezed several orange slices into my glass to make it less bitter. I don’t like sparkling water, but with extra fruit, I enjoyed my Aperol Spritz very much! It’s very refreshing!

Strawberry Plum Rose Sangria Recipe

Fruity and Fresh Strawberry Plum Rosé Sangria. A perfect refreshing party cocktail recipe! LivingLocurto.com

Plums are becoming one of my daughter’s new favorite fruits and we always have them in the house.  To the point where I felt I HAD to use them for some type of recipe on the blog. With summer parties happening, I thought a plum sangria would make a delicious and refreshing drink!

After the popularity of my Tropical Pineapple Sangria (the video has over 2.5 million views on Facebook!!!), I’ve been a little obsessed with trying new flavors of sangria. I have never made a cocktail with rosé wine, so was excited to try it in this new drink recipe.

The good thing about rosé wine is that most people enjoy the light, sweet flavor which will make this Strawberry Plum Rosé Sangria a very popular fruity party drink!

Because plums are often tart, I mixed in some sweet strawberries and fresh cherries. This combo with the rosé wine and a little Chambord, black raspberry liqueur, turned out amazing if I do say so myself!

I can’t wait to serve this for the 4th of July! This recipe would be great for all kinds of parties, especially wedding showers, baby showers or birthday parties. Sangria is also perfect for hanging around by the pool as well.

The bright red colors of the fruit, make this not only a tasty drink, but beautiful cocktail!

I thought the fruit would be too tart and I would have to add some sugar or simple syrup, but after adding the Chambord and lemon lime soda, my drink was perfect! Not too sweet and just a little tangy from the wine. You can always add sugar if you like a sweeter drink.
