The Blue Scooby Snack is a fun, tropical cocktail that gets its name from the popular cartoon character, Scooby-Doo. This drink is a favorite among beach-goers and party-goers alike, with its bright blue color and sweet, fruity flavors. It's a popular choice for those who enjoy sweet and creamy cocktails. The Blue Scooby Snack is also a favorite at themed parties, especially those with a beach or tropical theme.

How Blue Scooby Snack Tastes?

The Blue Scooby Snack is a sweet and creamy cocktail with a hint of tropical fruit flavors. The combination of coconut rum, blue curacao, and pineapple juice gives it a fruity and refreshing taste, while the cream adds a rich and smooth texture. The sweetness of the drink is balanced by the tartness of the pineapple juice, making it a delightful and balanced cocktail.

Interesting facts about Blue Scooby Snack

  • The Blue Scooby Snack is named after the popular cartoon character, Scooby-Doo.
  • Despite its name, the Blue Scooby Snack doesn't contain any snacks or food ingredients.
  • This cocktail is often served in a shot glass, but can also be served as a full-sized drink.


Coconut Rum

Used for its tropical flair, coconut rum adds a sweet and nutty flavor that gives a vacation vibe to any drink. Go overboard, and you could drown in sweetness. Skip it? You'll lose the tropical foundation of your cocktail. Alternatives? White rum could step in, but you'd likely want to shake hands with a splash of coconut cream to keep the island spirit alive.

Blue Curacao

The life of the party, this blue beauty brings a vibrant color and a hint of bitter orange to the mix. Pour too much, and you risk overpowering the cocktail with citrus. Without it, your Scooby Snack is just not as groovy. Alternatives? Triple sec is a cousin worth inviting for a similar flavor sans the Smurf blue hue.

Pineapple Juice

This juicy guest brings the sunshine. It's sweet yet tart, and in harmony, it makes the drink shine. Too much? You're in a pineapple puddle. None at all? It's like a beach with no sun. Alternatives? Mango nectar could sway in for a different tropical twist.

The smooth operator. Cream rounds out the edges and makes everything mellow and rich. Overshoot the mark, and it's heavy as a cloud. Forget it? The drink loses its silky charisma. Alternatives? Half-and-half for a lighter touch, or coconut milk for dairy-free velvet.

In case you forgot basics how to make Blue Scooby Snack

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Learn everything on how to shake

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
