to create the stripes of the flag so that you can drink to the South American
country. This cocktail is made up of vodka, orange juice and lemon juice which
are combined and then layered with grenadine and blue curacao.

to love Bahama Mama. This glass of pure sunshine is made up Malibu, pineapple
juice, lemon juice, dark rum, light rum, grenadine and coffee liqueur to make
for a taste sensation in your mouth. The ingredients list might be extensive,
but the effect is incredible. Sit next to it for long enough and you might even
catch a tan!

Fuzzy Melon

There are few cocktails that can pull off this shade of green, but the Fuzzy Melon does it well. This recipe is based on that of the Fuzzy Navel, adding vodka, pineapple juice and watermelon liqueur to the traditional peach schnapps and orange juice to make for a tropical feast. The combination of juices makes for a vivid shade that is sure to turn a few heads!

Tequila Sunrise

You can’t have a list of colourful cocktails and not mention the classic Tequila Sunrise.

of the glass to emulate a tropical sunrise. This drink is always a
crowd-pleaser.
