How to Make Mermaid Water in a Pitcher

Skinny Mixes’ unique Sugar Free Mermaid Syrup is the best fool-proof way to bring your mermaid party drink ideas to life, even if it’s just a simple mermaid water recipe! 

Mermaid water is one of the best tropical drinks for a summer vacation. It’s very potent, with a two-fruit combo finishing the drink with a tropical essence. To make it even better, though, you can add a few splashes of Skinny Mixes’ Mermaid Syrup to tie the drink together and give it a stronger fresh flavor and beachy vibe!

What Is Mermaid Water?

Mermaid water is a punch-style cocktail made using a mix of three alcohols and two fruit juices, namely spiced rum, coconut rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and lime juice. This combo of liquors makes it a drink that might not bode well with the soft-hearted, but if you can handle your alcohol, it’s a fun and refreshing drink that’s perfect for summertime parties!

How to Make Mermaid Water

Making mermaid water is easier when you have the following bartender’s tools:

  • Shaker
  • Bar spoons
  • Citrus juicer

If you don’t have any of these, you can find alternatives at home, such as simply using a pitcher and a large spoon and using your hands to squeeze out your citrus juice.

To make mermaid water, first, slice a piece of lime into lime wheels. Set these aside for later. Then, in a shaker filled with ice, mix 1.5 ounces each of spiced rum and coconut rum, an ounce of blue curacao, and six ounces of pineapple juice. Squeeze a large lime into the mixture; this should get you about an ounce of lime juice. Add a splash of Skinny Mixes sugar-free Mermaid Syrup, then shake the beverage.

Fill a glass with ice and add two lime wheels along the slide of the glass, then pour your mermaid water cocktail in.

This recipe makes enough for one drink, so if you’re making a larger serving, just double or triple (or quadruple!) the ingredient portions.

Exclusive to the brand, this flavoring tastes like tropical fruit juices, coconut, and pineapple, mixed with a lot of mermaid magic! You can add it to any beverage of your choice, from cocktails to lemonades to teas. You can even add some splashes into a glass of water to make true mermaid water.
