Quarantiki Cocktail Recipe


This rum-based Quarantiki cocktail is a fun take on a tiki drink. It will help you get in the tropical mindset even when you’re stuck inside!

We’ve been stuck inside for 45 days now and I’ve had a lot of time to think about cocktails…and test them out! (Over and over again just to be sure they’re good 😉)

This one – the “quarantiki” – has become an absolute favorite in our house. It’s a play on tiki drinks, which are a staple of the bar scene here in Los Angeles. If you aren’t familiar, tiki drinks are usually rum-based and heavily lean on fruit juices for mixers. This makes them perfect for summertime and backyard pool parties.

Since we’re trying to limit our grocery trips right now, I was looking around to see what kind of tiki cocktail I could make with ingredients we already had. Luckily we keep our bar pretty stocked, so I had a couple of different rums and some pineapple juice at my disposable.


  • Blue Curacao This liqueur is flavored with orange peels and then dyed blue. It is responsible for the color change in this cocktail.
  • Dark Rum – This is the most common variation of rum. I use Myer’s Dark Jamaican Rum. 
  • Coconut Rum Coconut rum is incredibly sweet and helps balance out the tanginess of the pineapple juice. I use Malibu Coconut Rum. 
  • Pineapple Juice – This recipe was developed using canned pineapple juice, but if you have fresh available, that’s even better!
  • Orange Bitters – A dash or two of orange bitters helps to bring extra depth to this rum cocktail.
