Recipe: Toucan Sam

This is one of those uber girly cocktails for people that want something sweet that really doesn't taste like alcohol (like me). It's also a great candidate for one of those cute little umbrellas. Warning, though, it is SWEET. You can tart it up by cutting out the grenadine or upping pineapple juice or the Curacao. It's also quite potent.

3/4 oz Blue Curacao
3/4 oz Spiced Rum
3/4 oz Coconut Rum
3/4 oz Triple Sec
3 oz Pineapple Juice
splash of Grenadine

Combine everything but the grenadine in a cocktail shaker filled 1/2 full with ice. Cover and shake until blended. Pour into a hurricane glass over ice. Pour a splash of grenadine into the glass (it will sink to the bottom).

Variation: For a slightly sweeter, less pineapply flavor, substitute Peach Schnapps for the Triple Sec.

*If you double the recipe, it will use an entire little can of pineapple juice.
