We're Turning Tropical! - Tropical Flowers from Appleyard

To celebrate our brand new tropical flowers bouquet Tropicana, we're sharing with you some tropical cocktail ideas!

Tropical flowers are much more exotic than any flowers you will find on the British isles. We're really excited to introduce our first Tropical bouquet 'Tropicana' and to do so we're also going to give you some tasty cocktail recipes too!



Blue Hawaiian



  • 50ml Bacardi Carta Blanco
  • 50ml blue curaçao
  • 1 tsp coconut cream
  • 100ml pineapple juice

How to mix
Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake then strain into a glass with cracked ice to serve.

Pina Colada



  • 6-7 chunks of pineapple
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut cream
  • 50ml Bacardi Carta Blanco
  • 50ml fresh pineapple juice
  • Ice
  • To garnish: A pineapple triangle

How to mix

  1. Place all your ingredients into the blender (apart from the garnish!) and blend until a smooth consistency
  2. Pour into a chilled (or even better, frozen) glass, then add your garnish and serve



  • 3 parts Bacardi Carta Blanco
  • 175g ripe strawberries or 200g raspberries (or use a mix of 100g strawberries and 100g raspberries)
  • 1 part lime juice or fruit syrup of your choice
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • Cubed ice

How to mix

  1. Chill your glass (the easiest way is to fill it with ice)
  2. Add the lime and sugar to your cocktail shaker and stir until the sugar dissolves
  3. Put lots of ice and the remaining ingredients into the shaker and shake hard for about 30 seconds to chill and dilute the mix
  4. Strain into the glass. You don’t need a garnish for this drink, but a lime wedge or pinwheel (a pinwheel is just a thin slice) won’t go amiss

So enjoy one of these gorgeous cocktails (responsibly) and get ready for summer!
