The Swimming Pool Cocktail has strong similarities to the “German” version of the Piña Colada, as this is often made with cream in this country. The main difference is that Swimming Pool uses rum AND vodka. It gets its color from a dash of Blue Curaçao.

However, fans of the swimming pool will look at puzzled faces abroad, because under this name it is known almost exclusively in Germany. Internationally, the rum and vodka cocktail is known as Blue Hawaiian and almost always contains only vodka and no rum.

  • 20 ml cream (sweet)
  • 20 ml Cream of Coconut
  • 60 ml pineapple juice
  • 20 ml vodka
  • 20 ml white rum
  • 10 ml Blue Curaçao
  • Crushed ice
  • Maraschino cherry (garnish)
  • 1 piece fresh pineapple (garnish)



First, fill the shaker* (large cup) and the hurricane glass with plenty of crushed ice.
Add all liquid ingredients to the shaker and shake vigorously until condensation forms on the outside of the shaker.
Finish by straining the drink with a bar strainer into the glass filled with ice, garnish with a piece of pineapple and the cherry and serve with a straw. Ready is your homemade swimming pool cocktail!

Tip: For a particularly beautiful effect, float the Blue Curaçao over the drink first in the glass and do not add it to the shaker. This forms small blue clouds that slowly sink down.
