Cocktails of the week: Mer-tinis and Pirate Punch at Audubon’s Mermaid Saloon

You’ll definitely be swimming with the fishes after these two drinks

“You used to call me on my shellphone…”

But really, after two of these drinks, you might want to put your phone away to avoid texting your ex.

Audubon Aquarium is offering grown-ups the chance to see the famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids on the night of Nov. 8 in a so-fin-sticated and kid-free experience at the “Mermaid Saloon.”

Part of the package are two speciality cocktails; the Mertini and the Pirate Punch.

The Mertini is a play on a classic martini, with passionfruit puree, pineapple juice and blue curacao. Pirate Punch is a play on an Indonesian Rum Punch, with four different types of rum.


1.5 oz. coconut rum
1 oz. Blue curacao
1 oz. passionfruit puree
1/2 oz. lime juice, squeezed

Shake, serve in a martini glass. Garnish with starfruit. And enjoy!
