Could This Rum Drink Kill You?

After one sip, the long slumber is on its way.

I’ve said this before, there’s just something stylish and fun about a blue cocktail. They catch people’s eye and tell on-lookers that you’re out for a good time. They are usually pretty simple drinks and Blue Curacao is almost always involved. But there’s nothing wrong with simple if they taste like paradise. But this drink has a dangerous secret.

Okay, so the only thing dangerous about this drink is its name. It’s called the Sweet Poison and it was created by a mixologist at the Jekyll and Hyde Club in New York City. The ingredients of pineapple juice, coconut rum, Blue Curacao, and white rum are common ingredients in these blue drinks, so I’m guessing this drink might go by different names in other places. As you can see there is no harmful poisons, super overproof rum, or sharp objects being used to make this drink. It just has a devilish name and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact that’s why I chose this drink to highlight today.

Damn marketing.

Sweet Poison Drink Recipe

  • 1 Pineapple juice
  • 2 oz Coconut rum
  • 1 oz Blue Curacao
  • 1 oz White Rum

Mixing Instructions: Combine both rums and Blue Curacao in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, then pour into a cocktail glass. Fill the rest of the glass with chilled pineapple juice. Garnish with a pineapple wedge. Raise glass and toast.

As always, let me know what you guys think of the drink. If you have another good recipe for a blue cocktail let me know. I’d be happy to feature it in a Boat Drinks post.
