I have been blessed to have taken several Caribbean cruises over the last few years. One of my very favorite things about those vacations is sitting on the balcony, sipping a fruity tiki drink, and just watching the color of the ocean turn to a gorgeously indescribable blue color as we get closer to our destinations.
Since I have a workload that would overwhelm the biggest workaholic AND I gave the family a Caribbean cruise for Christmas there will be no cruising for me this summer… but that doesn’t mean there wont be some fabulously cruise-worthy drinks like this Blue Lagoon in my future.
Best of all, I can keep it all low carb. Yay me!
So y’all know that I use Torani Sugar Free Syrups a lot. I use them in ice cream, I use them in all kinds of desserts, I add the pineapple sugar free syrup to cottage cheese, and I create amazing 0 carb cocktails every single weekend. There are so. many. syrups! They have over 100 flavors and many of them also come in sugar free versions.

Tiki Cocktail FAQs
This Blue Lagoon cocktail can definitely be classified at a tiki drink because of the addition of rum as well as the tropical vibe.
What’s in Blue Lagoon, the Cocktail?
The traditional version is basically vodka blue curacao, and lemonade – I am about to post an Electric Lemonade that’s very similar. This is not the traditional version but I think it retains the spirit (get it? Spirit?) of the original.
What is Tiki style?
Tiki drinks because popular in the middle of the 20th century – the 1950s and 60s. It is used in Polynesian style restaurants and clubs that were especially popular during that time. Between Hawaii becoming a state in 1959 and Elvis’s movie, Blue Hawaii, we developed an obsession with all things tropical from pink flamingos to tiki drinks!
What Makes a Drink Tiki?
- Rum. Although there are lots of drinks called tiki drinks that don’t have rum it is considered one of the signatures of a good tiki cocktail.
- Fruit Juice. Ok, this one is kind of out when you are doing low carb but with all of the Torani flavor possibilities you can come up with a pretty good adaption like I did in this Blue Lagoon cocktail.
- Layers of Flavor. There should be sweet, tangy, spicy… whatever you like but more than one flavor so it’s like a parade of tastes.

Blue Lagoon Cocktail
Are you ready for this cocktail? It’s a sweet combination of tropical and tangy flavors mellowed with a touch of almond. It’s so good. If you like a less sweet cocktail use club soda and the sugar free tonic. For a sweeter cocktail use sugar free ginger ale or lemon-lime soda and leave out the tonic.
