Polynesian Village Cocktail

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required and understand the steps and timings involved.

We are about to jet off to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and are staying at our DVC Home – Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

It’s been more than 3 years since we last visited (thanks Corona!) our happy place, and to celebrate our return, I simply had to share this delicious tropical concoction that I have named after the resort!

The Polynesian Village cocktail contains THREE different types of rum (my favorite liquor!), orange curaçao, and tropical fruit juices – what is not to love about that?!





You could get really fancy and use a pineapple corer to hollow out a whole pineapple to serve your drink, or just keep it simple with a glass and lots of fruity garnishes like we have.

Once mixed, simply lay back, close your eyes, and dream of Disney’s Polynesian!

Key Ingredients for Polynesian Village Cocktail

Polynesian Village Cocktail Variations

I like to try and give variations on the cocktails shared on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, like how to turn the cocktail into a mocktail so that non-drinkers (and kids if suitable) can enjoy the drink too!

Virgin Polynesian Village Mocktail (Non-Alcoholic)

So that non-drinkers can enjoy this tropical drink we simply remove the alcohol and replace it!

For kiddos, mix the tropical juice with some lemon-lime soda or sparkling lemonade to make a long, fizzy, fruity drink.

For adults, we’re going to pop in a few syrups, and there is also the option of non-alcoholic liquors these days too.

I love the Monin brand of syrups as there are lots of flavors and they are a very versatile ingredient that can be used in cocktails, mocktails, coffee, cocoa, shakes, smoothies, and more.

To make a Polynesian Village Mocktail stir the following ingredients together and garnish with fruit as on the recipe card:

*I haven’t made the mocktail version, so I recommend adding the syrups to taste as they may add a sweetness that you may not necessarily get from alcoholic liqueurs.

Frozen Polynesian Village

Want to turn this drink into a frozen slushie? Easy! Put all the ingredients in a blender with a generous amount of crushed ice – then blend till smooth. Serve with a straw, and watch out for brain freeze! You could do the same with the mocktail version too.

Polynesian Village For a Crowd!

Want to make a big batch of this rum-filled beverage for a party or gathering? It’s so easy!

As long as you use the same measuring container (glass, cup, jug, etc.,) for the “1 part”, the ratios will be correct and you can make as much as you need to.

Serve the large batch cocktail in drinks dispensers, pitchers, or go really retro and serve from a punch bowl! Whichever container best suits your event (and the drink!).

Make sure you add plenty of ice to your serving receptacle of choice to keep the cocktail chilled. If serving in a punch bowl or pitcher, throw in some fruit garnish such as chopped pineapple, cocktail cherries, chopped kiwi, and citrus slices.

Or you could skewer fruit onto cocktail picks for guests to garnish their drinks.

When setting up your bar serving area, include cocktail glasses, small napkins, a filled ice bucket, stirrers, and themed cocktail decorations if suitable! A tropical cocktail is always the time to break out the paper umbrellas and decorations!

To make a big batch of Polynesian Village cocktail mix together:

  • 3 parts Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Pineapple Rum
  • 3 parts Bacardi Tropical Rum
  • 3 parts Blackheart Toasted Coconut Spiced Rum (or coconut rum)
  • 3 parts Orange Curaçao
  • 16 parts Tropicana Island Punch or fruit juice
