At Mariposa Cruises we make several scrumptious beverages behind our bars for our guests to enjoy. No summer is complete without enjoying a delicious fruity cocktail. That’s why we wanted to share with you, one of our favourite tropical cocktail recipes, in case you’d like to try this at home.

Our Featured drink is the Tropical Breeze Martini

This is a delightful summer favourite with island-style fruity flavours and a striking green hue. It’s a perfect drink to serve up at your next luau themed party or backyard gathering but it’s best enjoyed overlooking the beautiful Toronto skyline aboard any of our six vessels.

Here is our step-by-step guide to making your own Tropical Breeze Martini at home:

What you’ll need:

3/4 oz Malibu Rum
3/4 oz Blue Curacao
2 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz lime mix


Step 1: Fill your cocktail shaker halfway with ice.


Step 2: Add Malibu Rum

Step 3: Add Blue Curaçao

Step 4: Add lime mix

Step 5: Add Pineapple Juice 

Step 6: Shake well


Step 7: Strain into a martini glass.

Step 8: Garnish with any of the following – a wedge of lime, Maraschino cherries, and/or an orange slice. Add an umbrella to give it an extra tropical feel.

Step 9: The most important step – Enjoy!

If this sounds like too much work, our Mariposa bartenders will be delighted to make you a tasty Tropical Breeze Martini when you come aboard any of our cruises..
