Island Oasis

Island Oasis cocktail

Tyler Zielinski

This festive cocktail was created by bartender and cocktail educator Jena Ellenwood, who came up with it for a relative’s summer wedding. “The groom requested a Mai Tai,” she says, “but I couldn’t in good conscience make a drink that powerful for a summer wedding, so I created this tropical shrub and added coconut water for hidden hydration.” 

The result is a delicious drink that won’t knock you off the dance floor after just one. How’s that for looking out for everyone’s best interests? 


  • 2 ounces aged rum
  • 2 ounces coconut water
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce pineapple shrub


  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
