Castaway Cay: Konk Cooler

There are a lot of really good reasons to go on a Disney Cruise, but one of them is to experience Disney’s private Bahamian island, Castaway Cay. On this magical dot of paradise in the Caribbean Sea has the most perfect tropical beverage Disney calls a Konk Cooler. I’ve been known to imbibe on a couple, so imagine my excitement when I found the recipe online (and then later discovered it was in my “Delicious Disney” cookbook)! If you aren’t a follower of the Disney Food Blog you really out to be.


The drink is a tad ingredient heavy. Two types of rum are involved (dark and light, but definitely not spiced!). Also Pina colada mix, orange juice, and passion fruit juice.


Pour ingredients (we did a double) into a cocktail shaker and serve over ice. How cute are the beaker measuring cups???


I enjoyed mine out of a mason jar, with a paper striped straw and a pineapple wedge. Now to wait 163 days until I can get the real deal. *sigh*
