Looking for something tropical to serve this summer? It's time to turn to tiki, if you aren't already on this timeless trend. Here, vibrant blue curaçao adds a touch of Day-Glo to a cocktail from NYC's Slowly Shirley in NYC. Add to that the curious addition of vodka in this rum-based genre, and you've got something that will really start the party.

Also, this cocktail couldn't be any easier to batch. Simply multiply the ingredients and pile them all into your blender for the perfect beverage to satisfy a crowd at your next summer cookout.
