Ingredients for Tropical Sunshine Cocktail
Passion fruit flavored vodka - we recommend using passion fruit flavored vodka. Some liquor stores may not have it in your area. Amsterdam Vodka and Smirnoff Vodka have a passion fruit flavored vodka. If you can't find passion fruit vodka, mango flavored vodka would be a fantastic alternative in this recipe and is more readily available.
Coconut rum - adds a touch of coconut flavor reminiscent of the tropical islands. It lingers in the background and does not overpower the drink.
Triple sec - any light flavored orange liqueur will work.
Pineapple juice - adds a sweet tropical flavor.
Orange juice - adds a tangy layer of flavor.
Fresh lime juice - adds a hint of tartness to balance the sweetness from the pineapple and orange juice.
Pineapple or lime wedge for garnish - optional.
Ice - crushed or cubed.
