Nooooo, I didn’t get a tattoo. I’m way too chicken to get one, although I’ve thought about it. But this is a darn good cocktail, and it just happens to have my name: Amy’s Tatoo Cocktail. 🙂

How cool is that?
So, I’ve had the drink and knew of it before, but never really thought about where the name originated. So of course I googled it—without any luck. So, if anyone knows where the name came from… let a sista’ know! Just curious.
Being that it’s already the middle of August, I’m trying to throw in as many “tooty-fruity” drinks as I can before the end of summer.
So, I’ll keep posting these tropical drinks until it gets frigid cold. Then what? I’ll figure that out when the time comes. I started “Thirsty Thursdays” on the blog in April of this year, so I have not clue what to do this winter!
On that note, I want to thank all of you for helping my blog to become a success. When I think of success, it means readership to me. It has come a long way since I started it in December of last year, and I am at my happiest when I get the time to blog and take photographs of food and drinks. And it’s all because of you. So a big shout out and hugs to all of you!
Okay, enough with the sappiness and down to the skinny on how you make this cocktail.
Here are your ingredients: dark rum and light rum (I used Bacardi), pineapple orange juice and grenadine. The original recipe calls for orange juice AND pineapple juice… same thing; just one less bottle.
And you know that anything with rum and fruit juice has to be good, right? That’s what I thought. Cheers! 🙂Print
- 1 part dark rum
- 1 part light rum
- 4 parts pineapple orange juice
- Splash of grenadine
- Pour all ingredients in a glass over ice. Stir well to combine.
