Last month, my husband and I went on an 8-day Southern Caribbean cruise. During our stops we spent a day in Curacao. By far my favorite island we visited while on that cruise. The people were friendly and the beaches were beautiful. The water… sigh… the water was crystal clear.

While in Curacao we we decided to go snorkeling verse our normal scuba diving. Our cruise ship arrived later in the afternoon to the port and didn’t give us enough time to dive. With recommendations from a friend we took a taxi to a local beach and brought our own snorkles. We saw a dive shop and asked the dive master about snorkeling conditions around the beach. He told us to swim outside the channel and we would instantly swim into a fish tank. So we took his advice and swam out past the channel.

Seriously, he was not lieing. It was the most amazing snorkeling we’ve ever done. Heck just as good as some or most of the dives we’ve been on. The water was sparkling clear. We were 20-30 feet in water and could see perfectly down to the bottom. Schools of angel fish swam passed us and sea urchins galore on the rocks. After our amazing snorkel we spent an hour on the beach and then headed back into town where we met up with fellow cruise mates to have dinner and drinks. While at a local restaurant we ordered a drink very similar to this Tropical Dream drink recipe I’m sharing today.

Curacao is known for the Blue Curacao liquor. We did not pick up any on our trip, because my parents had just visited a few months prior and bought us a huge bottle! As soon as we got home we opened it up and started experimenting on making delicious tropical drink recipes. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve made this drink since returning from vacation. It’s pretty much a Friday ritual for us. It makes us feel like we our drinking our summer vacation in a glass!

  1. What a fun cocktail…I’ll take summer in a glass! Thanks for sharing about your trip, Katie. And, have a fabulous Labor Day holiday weekend! Pinning!

  2. Just looking at this made me feel like I was on a cruise before I even read this was inspired from a cruise!! I haven’t been to that island but what an amazing snorkel.

    • Cathy–great minds think a like! You need to put Curacao on your list of islands to visit followed by Isla Roatan, Honduras and Barbados!

  3. I’m so sad that I have no beachy vacation plans right now that I’m going to drink about 13 of these for lunch. Homeschooling the kids this afternoon is going to be awesome!

  4. I’m kind of (okay totally) jealous of your vacation! It sounds magical. Except I’m totally scared to go on a cruise after all of the crazy issues lately.

    • Rachel–don’t be scared. I’ve been cruising since 1999 and love it–I’ve been on tons of them. Like Ali pointed out I’m the cruise queen. Stuff can go wrong anywhere… you just have to hope it doesn’t happen to you! :)

  5. You are the queen of cruises! :) Sounds like so much fun!

    And this drink definitely looks dreamy!

    • hahah Ali, that I definitely am and can’t deny it! We are actually going on one more cruise this year!

  6. My sister will love this drink. Right up her alley! :)
