Toxic Tonic Cocktail

In celebration of Nation Rum Day I made this Toxic Tonic Cocktail for you! Don’t be afraid of the bright green color…the flavor is out of this world good!

A Fun, Party Cocktail With Rum

This is not one of those fruity umbrella drinks that you can sip on all day and still make it through dinner that night. We all need to have those drinks for sipping on the beach – you want to enjoy your tropical cocktail but still make it until at least 10:00. Those kinds of drinks will get you through the night and still give you a little fun throughout the day.

But here I wanted to show you the harder side of rum. A drink that can really pack a punch but still taste just like one of those fruity, easy sipping cocktails. But after a couple of these you might want to make an early bird reservation for dinner so you can hit the hay early.

For this Toxic Tonic I used Captain Morgan Pineapple Rum even though it was hard to choose from all the flavors. There’s grapefruit, pineapple and coconut. All are awesome, all are perfect for making those famous rum cocktails.


This cocktail has a little bit of everything. Midori for that neon green color. Of course the rum, and also a little bit of moonshine. The moonshine is totally necessary – don’t leave it our otherwise the drink will just be fruity.

Fruity with no punch. Then it all gets topped off with a splash of tonic and pineapple juice, and trust me, it’s a winner.

How To Make A Toxic Tonic Cocktail

Get all of your ingredients together, shake them up in a shaker and pour it over ice.

You have to give this a big piece of pineapple and one of those umbrellas…just to make your friends think it’s not a drink to be concerned about.

And that’s all – it’s the easiest party drink recipe ever!
