Bayou Swamp Water Cocktail Recipe

This Bayou Swamp Water Cocktail is filled with pineapple juice, coconut rum, citron vodka, Chartreuse and blue curaçao.

This dangerously delicious drink has such a beautiful color and is like a trip to the bayou without the gators.

But be warned, just like a gator these drinks have a way of sneaking up on you…

This recipe is my version of Swamp Water that’s served at T River’s Bar in Madisonville, La.  This bar is not easy to get to, especially at high tide but well worth the trip.  It’s an outside bar with a huge patio with amazing views live music and the best Swamp Water Cocktail. Period.

Green Chartreuse

I’m guessing T River’s doesn’t use Chartreuse in their Swamp Water, but I had some on hand from making Tipsy Mermaids and it was a welcome addition to my Swamp Water Cocktail.

I know Chartreuse is probably not something you have stocked in your bar, but you really should give it a try.

Chartreuse has a funky, herbal flavor and is made only by monks using the same recipe based on an ancient manuscript dating back to 1605.  It contains 130 herbs and plants and is apparently the only naturally green liqueur.  Check here for other ideas for using Chartreuse.  I also use it in my Tipsy Mermaid.

The sales of the liqueurs allow the Chartreuse Monks the funds necessary to survive in this commercial world and give to them the ability to dedicate their lives to prayer and meditation.

 

Cheers!

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz lime juice - fresh squeezed
  • 2 oz coconut rum
  • 1 oz citron vodka
  • 1 oz green Chartreuse
  • 1/2 oz blue curaçao
  • pineapple wedge - optional
  • maraschino cherry - optional

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a large pint glass and stir to mix.
  • Pour into a pint glass filled with ice.
  • Garnish, if desired, with a pineapple wedge and a maraschino cherry.
  • Serve with a straw.

Notes

 
 
If you don't have Green Chartreuse you can substitute 1/2 oz of Midori.  It will change the flavor a bit - still very yummy - and you'll still get the awesome turquoise color.
