Cocktail of the Week: Fishbowl Punch
Here’s our take on the whimsical Fishbowl Punch. Dive in to a bowl sized version and share with friends or cut the recipe in half or quarters to dip your toe in the tropical waters! Enjoy!
4 oz Malibu Coconut Flavored Rum
4 oz Vodka
1.5 oz Blue Curacao (a blue colored, orange flavored liqueur)
2 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Strained Fresh Lemon Juice
1 oz Strained Fresh Lime Juice
Sprite (I prefer Sprite Zero)
A Sense of Humor
Pour Rum, Vodka, Curacao and Juices and 4 ounces of Sprite into a pitcher and stir. Put Nerds in the bottom of a glass bowl or large container or for an individual size, try a brandy snifter. Pack the rest of the container with ice. Place Swedish Fish (or other gummies) along the sides of your container; held in place with ice. As soon as the liquid hits the Nerds, they will start to melt and discolor your drink so don’t pour until you are ready to drink. When you’re ready, pour the mixture over ice and top off with more sprite. Add four straws and four friends and have fun!
This Fishbowl Punch is an adaptation of a Blue Hawaiian – if you like the drink, but not the murky water, try it without the Nerds for a cleaner look and taste.
For a refreshing drink on a bright and sunny day, try a Dark and Stormy. This traditionally tropical drink will add some chill to any hot occasion. A delightful excuse to use my favorite copper mugs but also tasty served in a rocks glass.
2oz Dark Rum
Ginger Beer (approximately 6oz)
A large wedge of Fresh Lime
Fill your glass with ice, pour in Rum, top with Ginger Beer and add a big squeeze of Fresh Lime. Stir, sip and enjoy!
What’s ginger beer? Ginger Beer is a fermented beverage made from ginger. Ginger Beer has a deeper flavor, cloudier appearance and frothier pour compared to its sweeter, bubblier carbonated cousin ginger ale.

12 – 14 Mint Leaves + a few leaves for garnish
3oz White Rum
3oz Club Soda
1.5 oz Simple Syrup
1.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
Ice and a Cocktail Shaker
Put the mint in a shaker and lightly muddle (smash) the leaves with a muddler or the back of a spoon. Pour in the Rum, Lime Juice and Simple Syrup and fill with Ice. Shake! Pour into highball glasses. Top with Club Soda and garnish with Mint and/or Lime.
Experiment by swapping lemon for the lime or muddling some ripe blackberries with your mint. Simple Syrup is really simple. Just put 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer for a few minutes to dissolve all the sugar. Store in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks. Enjoy!
