Honestly? A cocktail that does not follow a typical formula is liberating and thrilling.
It means you have lots of leeway to experiment with the components without someone informing you that you've gone too far.
Is coconut rum, or rum in general, not your cup of tea? Vodka, coconut or otherwise, is an excellent substitute.
If you want the blue color to stand out even more, add an extra half ounce of blue curaçao, or if you don't want the extra sugar, add up to three or four drops of blue food coloring.
Add shredded coconut on the top of your blue smurf drink! Dip the rim in a saucer with cream of coconut or honey, either completely or partially, and then in a second saucer with shredded coconut.
If you don't want to rim the glass, scatter some crushed coconut on top. To the original cherry and pineapple wedge garnish, add a slice of coconut.
Use a lime, lemon, or orange wheel, wedge, or slice for a citrus twist. Use them on their own or alongside the original garnish.
Garnish with many punctured blueberries on a cocktail skewer to go big with the blue motif.
