how to make a castaway cocktail

The Castaway cocktail is a tropical and refreshing drink perfect for enjoying on a sunny day. It typically combines rum, coconut cream or coconut milk, and various fruit juices to create a delightful and fruity flavor. Here’s how to make a Castaway cocktail:


  • 1 12 oz (45 ml) white rum
  • 1 oz (30 ml) coconut cream or coconut milk
  • 2 oz (60 ml) pineapple juice
  • 1 oz (30 ml) orange juice
  • 12 oz (15 ml) lime juice
  • 12 oz (15 ml) grenadine syrup
  • Crushed ice
  • Pineapple slice, maraschino cherry, and an orange wheel for garnish (optional)


  1. Fill a shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Add the white rum to the shaker.
  3. Pour in the coconut cream or coconut milk.
  4. Add the pineapple juice, orange juice, and lime juice.
  5. Shake the mixture vigorously until well combined and chilled.
  6. Fill a tall glass with crushed ice.
  7. Strain the cocktail mixture into the glass over the crushed ice.
  8. Slowly pour the grenadine syrup over the back of a spoon or by drizzling it down the side of the glass to create a layered effect. The grenadine will settle at the bottom, giving the drink its signature sunset look.
  9. Optionally, garnish your Castaway cocktail with a pineapple slice, a maraschino cherry, and an orange wheel.
  10. Serve the cocktail with a straw or a stir stick for mixing the grenadine layer with the rest of the drink before sipping.

Enjoy your Castaway cocktail responsibly, and savor the tropical flavors that transport you to a paradise getaway.
