The Bubble Bath cocktail is a modern creation, a fun and playful drink that's perfect for those who enjoy sweet and fruity cocktails. It's a favorite among those who enjoy tropical flavors and is often served at beach parties and summer gatherings. The cocktail's name comes from its frothy top layer, which resembles a bubble bath. It's a great choice for those who enjoy cocktails with a whimsical touch.

How Bubble Bath Tastes?

The Bubble Bath cocktail has a sweet, fruity taste with a hint of tartness. The combination of pineapple juice, coconut rum, and blue curaçao gives it a tropical flavor, while the cream adds a smooth, velvety texture. The frothy top layer adds a fun, playful element to the drink.

Interesting facts about Bubble Bath

  • The Bubble Bath cocktail is often served in a hurricane glass, which enhances its tropical appearance.
  • The cocktail's frothy top layer is created by shaking the cream vigorously.
  • Despite its sweet taste, the Bubble Bath cocktail has a relatively high alcohol content due to the rum and blue curaçao.


Pineapple Juice

Pineapple juice brings a sweet, tropical tang to the table, bringing thoughts of palm trees and sandy beaches to mind. Too much and you’re in a fruit salad; too little and you miss the tropical bus. If you're not a pineapple fan, how about some mango juice? It'll be like swapping Hawaii for the Bahamas!

Coconut Rum

Coconut rum, the smooth operator in this tropical symphony, adds the velvety coconut essence that plays well with pineapple. Pour liberally and you might as well be drinking sunscreen; skimp on it, and your cocktail loses its island soul. If you wish to avoid the rum notes, give coconut water a shot—less boozy, still beachy.

Blue Curaçao

This liqueur is the life of the party, giving the cocktail that gorgeous aqua allure. Leaving it out is like telling a mermaid to wear a business suit—it just doesn’t work. If blue isn't your hue, try orange curaçao. You'll lose the 'bubble bath' vibe, but the cocktail will still taste like a dreamy vacation.

Cream is the floating cloud on top of this aquatic daydream, adding a silky mouthfeel that takes the edge off the fruit acids. Without it, you have a tropical punch; with it, you have a creamy paradise. Lactose intolerant? Fear not! Coconut cream could cuddle up nicely in its place.

Ice Cubes

Ice is the unsung hero, chilling the mix to perfection. Without it, the drink warmth might invite you to take a nap instead of a dip in the bubble bath. No ice? Serve it in a chilled glass, pretending you're sipping in a snow-bound igloo—coolness guaranteed!

Perfect Pairings


Especially grilled shrimp or lobster can complement the tropical flavors of the Bubble Bath cocktail. The sweetness and acidity from the pineapple juice, alongside the cocktail's creaminess, matches well with the natural sweetness of seafood.

Fruit-based Desserts

A light fruit tart or a tropical fruit salad can be delightful with this drink. The coconut rum and pineapple juice would resonate with fruit flavors, without overpowering the dessert.

Salty Snacks

Think along the lines of salted nuts or pretzels. The saltiness will contrast nicely with the sweet and creamy notes of the cocktail, making for a perfect snack pairing while you sip your Bubble Bath.

Hawaiian or Caribbean Dishes

The tropical notes of the cocktail fit perfectly with the flavors of these cuisines. Try it with a jerk chicken or a Hawaiian poke bowl for a real island experience.

The Tropical Sunset

Swap out blue curaçao for grenadine, and this bath will mimic a vibrant sunset. The drink turns red and gets a hint of pomegranate sweetness. It's like viewing the sundown on a balmy beach, without the sandy toes.

The Lava Flow

Add a blend of strawberry puree for a fiery twist and watch the red swirls mimic the flow of lava. It's a sight to behold and sipping it feels like flirting with a fruity volcano.

The Virgin Voyage

Skip the rum, double the pineapple juice, and suddenly you've got a mocktail safe for all ages. It's the Bubble Bath for when you’re the designated survivor—or driver!

In case you forgot basics how to make Bubble Bath

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.
