Delicious recipe for Blue Piña Colada Party Punch that is kid-friendly and perfect for 4th of July, a baby shower, or summer birthday parties!

Well, folks, the 4th of July is creeping up on us and red, white, and blue patriotic food and drink are taking over the internet world.  I’m here to do my part in contributing to that today.  Isn’t this the most beautiful punch you have ever seen?  I’m good at tooting my own horn like that, I know.  I just love the super vibrant blue color of this punch.  It is so summer-like and cheery!  Most blue punches that I have seen have pineapple juice, sprite and Blue Hawaiian punch (this one is my default punch).  This particular punch is different and unique because it has almost a little bit of a “creaminess” to it because of the Piña Colada drink mix added in, which is thick and creamy by itself.  It adds that unconventional taste that you normally don’t get in a non-alcoholic party punch.

Speaking of Blue Hawaiian punch….have you ever had that drink called a Blue Hawaiian?  It is actually my favorite drink to order when on vacation and this Blue Piña Colada Party Punch reminds me a lot of it.  It tastes very similar to a Piña Colada with that yummy coconut flavor that I love.  And of course, I love the pretty blue color.

Simple, tasty Blue Piña Colada Party Punch recipe that is non-alcoholic and perfect for fourth of July, a baby shower, or Disney mermaid birthday parties!

I could see this served at a fourth of July party because it is absolutely perfect for children or adults and it’s festive!  I also think it would fit in great at a baby shower for a baby boy.  Also – hello?  A child’s birthday party (think “Frozen” or “Little Mermaid” theme parties!)  Any other ideas where this color punch would fit in great?

For an adult party, you can add some Malibu coconut rum for extra coconut flavor or Blue Curacao for a little citrus flavor (or add both)!  That would really make this taste like a Blue Hawaiian!

    Love the electric blue! I can see this appearing at an adult Frozen-themed party! Gosh, I’ve been influenced too much by my 5-year old. Ha ha! 🙂

    I think I’ll need to throw a party so I can make this punch! Pretty.

    I need to have my girls make it for the 4th! They will love it!

    This is beautiful! I’m going to have to make a batch

    Love the color and really love your idea of serving this for a Frozen party! My granddaughter would be thrilled!

    I pinned this recipe yesterday – and at the time, my 8-year-old was looking over my shoulder. When she saw these photos – she said “Ooooooo – can we make THAT?!” 🙂 Definitely going on our July 4th menu!

    What a fun punch to serve for all our wonderful patriotic holidays! The color is perfect for any red, white and blue theme! For me, I’d add the rum. LOL

    What a fun idea for the 4th! I can imagine my youngest son wanting to ladle this over a scoop of ice cream to make a pina colada float.

    What a beautiful, vibrant color! I bet this punch won’t last long at any 4th July party. I have never tried Blue Hawaiin – must have one soon!

    Ashley, I’ve seen a lot of smoothies, popsicles and baked treats for the fourth – but, I haven’t quite seen anything like this before! So love the blue coloring and that cherry garnishing!

    Did you use the 12 oz can of pina colada mix found in the freezer section?

    • May 27, 2016 at 10:25 PM #

      Hi Rick- no, I actually used the bottle of the mix that’s with the drink mixers. Sorry I didn’t specify! -Ashley

        Thanks for the reply. Do you think it would work with the concentrate?

        • May 28, 2016 at 9:15 AM #

          I think it definitely could! I don’t see why not. You would still have the coconut flavor. Let me know how it turns out if you try 😊😊 -Ashley

            Ashley, nope. The frozen concentrate turns the punch green. So, stick with the regular mix.

            Aww bummer. Sorry that didn’t work out!

    Is Blue Raspberry kool aid the same as blue raspberry lemonade kool aid? I can’t seem to find any other. Other than that, this looks amazing!

    • August 5, 2016 at 11:14 PM #

      Yes – that’s what I used! 🙂 Thanks, Shannon!

    My Grand daughter is turning 2 this weekend & We have the non alcoholic kiddie punch taken care of (Ocean water for a Bubble Guppies theme) & because We have 2 specific beverage containers,1 easily operated by kids & the other on a much higher stand & not easily poured by kids (Heck,I have a hard time dispensing This one,Too,With carpal tunnel hands! LOL) I think this will be just the ticket for The Adults to deal with yelling,hyper kids all under the age of 8.Going to experiment with adding the coconut frozen concentrate,pineapple sherbert with Malibu rum.Or a basic pina colada recipe & add in the blue Hawaiian punch or even blue koolaid mixed with sprite or Schweppes gingerale which seems much lighter in flavor then other brands & would probably mix nicely & allow the pina colada flavor to shine through..Anyone else who can elaborate on this recipe to create a frozen,carbonated blue pina colada in alcoholic formation..Feel free to help Me play Beverage Frankenstein!!
