Tropical Cocktails to Serve in Your Home Garden Bar

Having a home garden bar is the ultimate luxury. It’s the perfect place to entertain your friends and make delicious drinks that you probably wouldn’t get down your local.

A hot UK summer can make you feel like you’re on holiday abroad, so why not go with the flow? Invite your friends round to you home garden bar for a tropical taste test by serving up some cocktails that transport you to the sunny side of the world.

Tropical Cocktails to Serve in Your Home Garden Bar

Before you start, there are some universal staple items ever mixologist should have: lots of ice, a blender, a cocktail shaker, reusable straws, fancy drinking vessels (such as faux coconuts or pineapples) reusable drinks stirrers and a Hawaiian shirt (optional).

Below are some easy tropical cocktail recipes to serve in your home garden bar. Suitable for even the most inexperienced mixologist, most recipes involve no more skill than knowing how to work a blender.

These recipes serve two, but ingredients can easily be doubled to serve four.

Coconut Daiquiri

A tasty treat for coconut-lovers, you’ll impress your guests with this drink that tastes like it takes some serious skill to prepare. 

You will need:

  • 2 glasses full of ice
  • 120 ml cream of coconut
  • 120 ml (4 shots) white rum
  • 50 ml fresh lime juice


Grab a blender (needs to be strong enough to blend ice) and pour all the ingredients in. Blend until it resembles the texture of a slush drink (or finer if preferred). Serve between two cocktail glasses.

Piña Colada

This is the drink that never fails to make you think of tropical holidays. Pairing coconut and pineapple, the end result is always a winning one!

You will need:

  • 240 ml pineapple juice
  • 120 ml (4 shots) of white rum
  • 120 ml of coconut cream 
  • 2 glasses full of ice
  • Fresh pineapple (purely for presentation)


This is another simple one where all ingredients apart from the fresh pineapple should be poured in the blender together. Blend until you have a thick, creamy texture and the ice has mostly disappeared. If you’re out to impress, loop a pineapple ring over the edge of glass.

Blueberry & Coconut Margarita

A fresh twist on the plain old Margarita, by adding blueberry and coconut flavours you can expect an explosion of flavour.

You will need:

  • 120 ml (4 shots) blanco tequila
  • 120 ml lime juice
  • 60 ml blueberry syrup
  • 60 ml coconut cream
  • 2 large glasses full of ice
  • lime wedges and a handful of blueberries (for presentation purposes only)


Blend everything aside from the fresh fruit until you get a smooth texture. Pour into cocktail glasses, hook the wedge of lime over the rim of the glass and rest a couple of blueberries on the top of the drink, inside the glass.

Dark & Stormy

For those salty sea dogs amongst your friends, where fruity cocktails aren’t their thing, serve up a Dark & Stormy. 

You will need:

  • 120 ml dark rum
  • 60 ml fresh lime juice
  • 240 ml chilled fiery ginger beer
  • ice cubes
  • lime wedge (for presentation)

Pour ingredients into a pitcher over lots of ice, stir and serve between two high ball glasses and enjoy. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
