Tropical Cocktail Booze Cubes

Summer is here and we’ve got a great way to cool off, tropical cocktail booze cubes. Coconut water, pineapple juice, and rum frozen and ready for your glass!

A few months ago, Kim and I decided to poll our followers on Facebook and ask them what kind of recipes they’d like to see from us this Summer. Overwhelmingly, mixed drinks and salads seemed to be what we heard about the most.

So, we set about creating posts that echoed what our followers desired. Kim started to work on the salads and I took the drinks.

For today’s post, I bring you booze cubes. A mixed drink, perfectly frozen, that can be dissolved in a liquid of your choice.

I chose sparkling water so you could see how pretty the melting cocktail looks when served. Feel free to change things as you desire; additionally, I will be providing for extra tips in the instructions below.

Love tropical drinks? Then take a look at our tropical vodka punch. It’s a tropical party punch for a crowd.

Tropical Cocktail Booze Cubes Instructions:

First, grab all of your ingredients in advance to make the preparation process easier for you. Using a large pitcher or blender, combine the pineapple juice, coconut water, and rum.

You don’t have to mix everything in the tools I listed, as long as the container used can hold more then 30-ounces you should be good to go.

All of the tropical cocktail booze cubes ingredients like coconut water, pineapple juice, and light rum.

Next, pour the mixture into a large ice cube tray. Now, chances are you will have left-over tropical cocktail drink mix.

It’s okay, use it however you see fit. For example, pour it into another ice cube tray or into a popsicle mold to make boozy popsicles.

Moreover, you could get really creative and cook it down into a sweet dessert sauce for angel food or pound cake.

Last, place the ice cube tray into your freezer for at least 8-hours. Now, I recommend leaving the tropical cocktail booze cubes to freeze overnight.

Don’t pull them too early or you will have a sticky mess on your hands, literally. Once the cubes have frozen, drop 3 of them into 8-ounces of liquid (your choice) and serve them in stemless wine glasses, cocktail glasses, or even Collins’ glasses.

Garnish the drinks with fresh fruit like lime, lemons, or even strawberries.

What a great way to essentially have pre-mixed cocktails ready to go! This sounds like a great way to avoid having someone man the bartending station at a BBQ so everyone can enjoy themselves.

Love this idea. I'm pinning it. We've always frozen juice cubes for our Sangria. Why water down a perfectly good drink, right? Now, you can sip your drink, enjoy an adult beverage, and keep it tasting good. This recipe is a keeper!!

Thank you, Marisa! Kim and I are glad you like the idea. That was kind of my thought behind this recipe. Why water down a drink, when the melting ice can be your drink. We hope you make them some time and enjoy the cubes. Have a lovely day :)
