->''"Hey, cabana boy! My drink needs more umbrellas! What kind of deserted island is this, anyway?"''
-->-- '''Strong Bad''', ''[[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail148.html Strong Bad Email #148]]''

A curved glass filled with bright pink (or blue, or orange...) fluid, garnished with little pieces of fruit and decorated with the all-important paper cocktail umbrella, possibly served in a coconut shell. This cocktail is associated with Pacific islands, especially HulaAndLuaus vacations. A tiki-themed tourist trap is not complete without a row of colorful rum-based cocktails, which are identifiable more by their decorations than by their contents, a visual shorthand for the type of drink one usually doesn't get at the local pub.

In RealLife, FluffyTheTerrible will sometimes apply; despite their widespread derision as "girly drinks" they are often [[GargleBlaster extremely potent,]] their smooth fruity taste concealing several ounces of rum.

An umbrella cocktail will be the regular DrinkOrder of a CloudCuckoolander.


* There is a Discworld/Sandman crossover fanfic called [[http://ewokese.livejournal.com/3553.html#t84449 "She Likes Umbrellas]] with Literature/{{Discworld}}'s DEATH meeting (and sort-of flirting with) Death from ComicBook/TheSandman, which involves him ordering one of these for her.

* In ''TheJerk'', Navin is very partial to these. At one point during his millionaire period, he actually gets a machine that dispenses them.
** "Be somebody!"
* ''Film/TronLegacy'', of all things, manages to have this--inside the Grid, no less. The "umbrella" appears to be made out of glass and metal, fittingly enough.
* ''Film/{{UHF}}'' - Weird Al is facing total failure with his new TV channel and goes to drown his sorrows at the bar with a big fancy umbrella drink. He didn't drink but decided it was a good time to start.
* ''Film/WaynesWorld'': When meeting the network guy to discuss business over drinks, Wayne and network guy drink beer. Garth has something huge, bright blue and garnished with what looks like a whole pineapple.
* One of the few unambiguously funny scenes in ''Film/{{Zodiac}}'' involves Robert Graysmith's (presumably accurate, he wrote the book) bizarre choice of drink of an ''aqua velva'' (pictured).
--> '''[[Creator/RobertDowneyJr Paul Avery]]:''' ''"[[CrowningMomentOfFunny This...can no longer be ignored.]]"'' \\
'''Graysmith:''' It's an Aqua Velva. You wouldn't make fun of it if you tried it. \\
Avery tries a sip of the drink. He thinks about it. \\
[[GilliganCut Cut to a table full]] of empty umbrella drinks and Avery being completely smashed.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'':
** Ridcully warns people against these in ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}''. Bilious, the (Oh) God of Hangovers, harbours a particular hatred for them.
** In ''Discworld/MenAtArms'', Detritus orders a "molten sulphur on coke with phosphoric acid", "with umbrella in it". Nobby's "Slow Comfortable Double Entendre with lemonade and a fruit salad in it" is also an example.
** Featured again in ''Discworld/{{Thud}}'', when Cheery, Angua and Sally go on a girls' night out. Towards the end of the evening, Sally ''throws up'' a humorous umbrella.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'', the " Advanced cocktailcrafting" skill allows you to summon various garnishes to improve your beverages. One of them is a little paper umbrella.
** Most of the drinks made with this skill are deemed "Fruity girl drinks" by the game's LemonyNarrator. The rest, which require an additional skill, are labeled "Extra-fruity girl drinks". With an ''evil'' paper umbrella, you can mix "Evil fruity girl drinks".
*** There's even a Demon Lord [[OddJobGods dedicated to Fruity Drinks.]]
* In ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', the umbrella is a plot point: [[spoiler:You have to order a fruity drink with an umbrella in it. The bartender is out of the little paper ones, so he'll give you a regular umbrella instead. It [[ParasolParachute doubles as a parachute]] later.]]
* [[http://deadrising.wikia.com/wiki/Drink_Cocktail Drink Cocktails]] appear all over Fortune City in ''VideoGame/DeadRising2''. They don't restore a huge amount of health, but can be mixed with other things to make more powerful drinks.
* ''Videogame/FableI'': One of the random snippets of dialogue you can overhear in the taverns is "A drink, please. With an umbrella in it." Humorously, the only drink actually available is [[AllBeerIsAle ale]].

One of these, "The [[Anime/TurnAGundam Laura Rolla]]", needs to be served with an umbrella for the joke to work. Specifically, [[spoiler:[[WholesomeCrossdresser you need it to hide the cocktail weiner]].]]
