The Bob Marley Cocktail starts with the sweet, fruity taste of grenadine at the bottom. As you sip further, the middle layer introduces the tropical flavors of coconut rum and pineapple juice, bringing a smooth and creamy texture.

The top layer of silver rum and blue curacao adds a refreshing citrusy note, balanced by the light kick of the rum. The combination of these flavors creates a delightful, multi-layered experience that is both refreshing and exotic.The vibrant colors and layered flavors of the Bob Marley Cocktail make each sip a unique adventure.

The initial sweetness of the grenadine is perfectly complemented by the tropical mix of coconut and pineapple in the middle, while the final hint of citrus from the blue curacao and the smoothness of the silver rum round off the drink beautifully. It’s a harmonious blend that captures the essence of a tropical paradise.

Recipe Card

Bob Marley Cocktail

Sip the Spirit of Jamaica in Every Colorful Glass


  • 0.5 oz grenadine
  • 1 oz coconut rum
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 0.5 oz silver rum
  • 0.5 oz blue curacao


  1. Build in a tall glass, starting with fresh ice.
  2. Pour in the grenadine first so it sinks.
  3. In a shaker add ice, pineapple juice, and coconut rum. Shake very well.
  4. Strain into glass over ice, making sure to not disturb the grenadine too much. Some layer mixing is normal.
  5. Rinse the shaker, add a couple ice cubes, then the silver rum and blue curacao. Shake a couple of times to combine.
  6. Very carefully strain this into the drink, over the back of a spoon. It should mix with the top part of the yellow layer and create a green layer. Might turn out teal, depending on your blue curacao.
  7. Serve this without mixing or stirring, but do mix before drinking.


If you want to be sure you get a green layer, opt for just a splash of blue curacao. It will give you much less orange flavor, but the layer will 100% be green.

Or swap the curacao for Midori.
