Level of Difficulty

Succumb to the alien sting with this infectiously delicious cocktail. Break through the alien skin to expose the foaming texture below. Look carefully; the green secretion lurking in the cocktail could speed up this deadly transformation.


narrow-mouth double old fashion glass (or shot glass)
2 oz  Coconut Rum
4 oz Pineapple Juice
1 tbsp. Midori

Alien Skin
1 oz plain gelatin  (four .5 oz packages)
1 cup of coconut rum (cold)
1 cup of pineapple juice (cold)
2 cups of water (boiling)


  • The Drink
    Mix rum and pineapple juice with ice in a shaker, shake until cold and foamy. Pour into a tall narrow-mouthed glass until almost full, using the back edge of a spoon, gently pour the Midori into the glass so it sinks below the foamed pineapple juice creating a green lower layer. Seal with alien skin gelatin disc.

  • Alien Skin
    Combine rum and pineapple juice and sprinkle gelatin over cold mixture and let set for a few minutes. Add boiling water and stir until fully dissolved (5 mins.) Pour into shallow flat bottom glass pans 1/4 in thick. Chill overnight. Place pan of set gelatin in hot water for a few seconds to loosen from the edges and invert onto a plate lined with wax paper. Cut into circles slightly larger than the mouth of the glass. Store in refrigerator on trays lined with wax paper until use.
