What’s In An Ocean Breeze Drink?

There are a few different ocean breeze cocktail recipes floating about the internet but the one I’m going to show you today is my tried and true recipe. 

It’s super easy to make and the color is just perfect.

Some versions of this blue water drink call for vodka instead of rum.

If you prefer, you can totally make a 1:1 swap for vodka but personally, I prefer the rum to give my ocean breeze that real Caribbean flavor. 

By the way, if you love blue cocktails, make sure to check out the Mermaid Water drink too.

All you need for the Ocean Breeze Cocktail Is:

  • White Rum
  • Lemonade
  • Blue Curacao
