Swimming Pool Cocktail Recipe

SWIMMING POOL COCKTAIL Recipe

Swimming Pool is the name of a creamy-sweet cocktail based on white rum and vodka. By combining rum with coconut and pineapple juice, it belongs to the group of coladas and is closely related to the popular Piña Colada. In contrast to this, part of the white rum is replaced by vodka and a shot of Blue Curaçao (blue orange liqueur) is added, which gives the drink the turquoise-blue color of a swimming pool and thus its name. Another famous cocktail of Schumann is the Flying Kangaroo.

  • 20 ml/ ⅔  oz. vodka
