Drink of the Week: The Platte River Splash

Hello, Omaha aficionados and cocktail connoisseurs! This week, we’re diving into a libation inspired by one of Nebraska’s most famous waterways, the Platte River. Introducing the Platte River Splash—a cocktail that brings a wave of tropical vibes to the Midwestern landscape!

With a blend of coconut water, blue curaçao, rum, and a splash of pineapple juice, this drink captures the feeling of lounging by a riverside, even if that river is far from tropical.

Here’s how to make the Platte River Splash:


  • 2 oz rum
  • 1 oz coconut water
  • 1/2 oz blue curaçao
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Pineapple slice and cherry for garnish


  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine rum, coconut water, blue curaçao, and pineapple juice.
  2. Add ice and shake well until chilled.
  3. Strain into a chilled glass filled with ice.
  4. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a cherry.

So, the next time you’re dreaming of a tropical escape but can’t quite make it past the city limits, whip up a Platte River Splash. It’s like a mini-vacation in a glass. Cheers to another fabulous summer week in Omaha!
