Tipsy Mermaid Drink Instructions
Making this cocktail is just as easy as gathering up the ingredients for it. In just a few steps, you’ll have a super tasty cocktail.
Step 1: Combine Juices and Rum
Combine the pineapple juice, Blue Curacao, lime juice, and rum in a mixing container such as a small pitcher and lightly stir.
Step 2: Add the Whiteclaw
Pour the White Claw into the juice and rum mixture and lightly stir.
Step 3: Serve with Garnish of Choice
Serve with ice and your choice of a lime slice, pineapple slice, or maraschino cherries, if desired.
Hint: Only stir one or two times until the cocktail is combined when adding the White Claw. You don’t want to loose the carbonation!
Store this cocktail in your belly! Seriously, though, only make these one at a time for your guests. Once the carbonation of the White Claw is gone, these cocktails just aren’t the same.
As cocktails go, this is one of the easiest that you’ll ever make, but I do have some secret little tips to make sure you create the best tipsy mermaid drink possible.
Adjusting Flavor: This cocktail is meant to be lightly flavored and focused on its eye-catching color. However, if you want more flavor, add a little more pineapple juice. Adjust the ingredient amounts to suit your tastes.
White Claw Flavors: You can use any White Claw flavor you prefer, we just find that the watermelon works best for us.
Lemon Juice: If you don’t have lime juice, try lemon juice. It tastes just as good!
Don’t Overmix: Be sure you don’t overmix the cocktail after you add the White Claw. Carbonation is a key part of this drink.

Why is my tipsy mermaid drink so bland?
This cocktail isn’t designed to be strongly flavored. It’s more of a vibe than a punch of flavor. Don’t have too many, though! Tipsy is in the name for a reason!

You probably overmixed it when you added the White Claw to the other ingredients. If you mix too much, the White Claw will lose its carbonation, leading to a flat drink.
