Louisiana Swamp Water Cocktail Recipe Is the Sweet Summer Sip You Need

Fruity flavors meld together for this perfect summer beverage

When it comes to summer beverages, I’m looking for three things: something that tastes good, looks pretty and feels refreshing. The fruitier the better, and anything that’s adult-friendly is also a win. And if you need a feel-good beverage, look no further than this Louisiana Swamp Water Cocktail recipe.

Pineapple and coconut are the stars of the show for this cocktail. Not only does this flavor combo taste delicious, but it also helps to create that swampy green color.  Add in the blue curaçao and you’ll be transported to Louisiana in an instant. As hot as it is where this drink originated, you’ll need a big glass with ice to beat the heat. Plus, all you have to do is mix the juice and liqueurs together. Grab even more pineapple for garnish and don’t forget to include one of those decorative drink umbrellas. Sipping on summer couldn’t come sooner!
