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

A bright pink (or blue, or orange...) cocktail, garnished with big pieces of fruit (or lots of small ones on a skewer) and decorated with the all-important paper cocktail umbrella, possibly served in a coconut shell, a hollowed-out pineapple, a fancy curved glass or a tiki glass. This cocktail is associated with beaches and 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. It also adds a bit more street cred when you know that these are the descendants of elaborate mixes popularized in speakeasies during [[TheRoaringTwenties the USA's Prohibition Era]] to mask the horrible flavor of poorly made and stored bootleg liquor.

An umbrella cocktail will be the regular DrinkOrder of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.

* In the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' story, "[[ComicBook/NintendoComicsSystem Bedtime for Drainhead]]", near the end of the story, after spending much of it looking for the sleepwalking Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool return to the Mushroom Castle to find King Koopa serving the rest of the cast these drinks as a result of being defeated by Mario.
-->'''Princess Toadstool:''' Daddy, why is Koopa serving us drinks with little paper umbrellas?\\
'''King:''' He's detail-oriented?

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'' Tzekel-kan insists a little umbrella be put in his potion.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In ''Film/TheJerk'', Navin is very partial to these. At one point during his millionaire period, he actually gets a machine that dispenses them.
* ''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's character George 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. In the commentary, Al says he wanted the drink to be much more ornate and practically stuffed with paper baubles and garnishments, but the prop department phoned it in.
** His friend Bob just orders a beer, but is let down when he sees George's drink and laments that his drink didn't have an umbrella.
* ''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''.
-->'''[[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'')
* ''Film/WrongfullyAccused'': Lauren gives Ryan a "real man's drink", which is served in a glass quite a bit bigger than his head with a small parasol stuck in it, requiring him to duck around the umbrella to get to the drink.

* ''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.
* Although no actual umbrellas are mentioned, at the end of ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Memory]]'' a character ([[spoiler: Ivan Vorpatril's [[GrandeDame mother Alys]]]]) is reported to be planning on taking a vacation, which will include sitting in a beach chair in the sun all day and drinking "those disgusting drinks with the fruit on a stick in them" (and spending all night with [[spoiler: Simon Illyan]]). Later on in the series, in the epilogue to ''Captain Vorpatril's Alliance'', Ivan can be found sharing a pitcher of "fruity girly drinks" with [[spoiler: his wife]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The Girl Drink Drunk from ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'' only drinks umbrella drinks... to the point where he mixes one up while sitting with a fellow wino on a park bench.
* Del Boy has a fondness for these in ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'', being under the erroneous impression that they make him look sophisiticated.
* In an episode of ''Series/TheWestWing'', John Larroquette's LargeHam character rants about how he's supposed to be on vacation, being brought drinks with "little [[AccentUponTheWrongSyllable UM-brellas]] in them."
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'': JD's drink of choice is the Appletini.
* Marshall Eriksen from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' loves fruity drinks with an umbrella ("They're delicious") but doesn't order them since they give "the wrong signal." Barney's gay brother, James, regularly orders them "because [he] can."
* The page image is Phil Coulson from ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' having one after temporarily losing control of S.H.I.E.L.D. due to an internal uprising.
* One episode of ''Series/PoliceSquad'' has Drebin served one with so many decorations added to it that it takes him a moment to find a way to put the glass to his lips without getting an umbrella up his nose.

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* Roland Rat's trademark Rat Cocktail is generally shown as one of these, but since he's a kids' character it's not alcoholic at all (basically a strawberry and banana milkshake in a fancy glass). Similar to Del Boy, Roland is a character with a rather tasteless idea of what sophistication looks like.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* 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]].

--> '''Paragon Shepard''': I'm the first human Spectre. I'll get you ''two'' umbrellas.\\
'''Joker''': Awesome use of power, boss.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''[[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad Email]]'' "disconnected" features Strong Bad's [[ItMakesSenseInContext decapitated head]] lounging on a [[FarSideIsland deserted island]], wearing sunglasses and laying next to a fancy tropical drink glass with several umbrellas in it, where the page quote comes from.
* One ''Creator/RoosterTeeth [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnbWDDPOxJA Animated Adventure]]'' reveals that [[Creator/TheSloWMoGuys Dan Gruchy]] ordered a slew of these at a dinner with Burnie and Gavin. Each one had a progressively "wackier" name and fruity appearance, and his first one was just a fishbowl filled with glowing ice cubes and colored straws.
* From the ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCw_aAS7vWI Yellow]]'' trailer for ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
-->''"Strawberry Sunrise. No ice. Oh, and one of those little umbrellas!"''

[[folder:Web Original]]
* One particularily memorable thread on [[Website/FourChan /m/]] had various posters coming up with recipes for ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' and other HumongousMecha-themed cocktails. 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]].]]
* In Franchise/TheMuppets video of the Electric Mayhem and Sam the Eagle performing "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4Bq69HfR0Y Jungle Boogie]]", the punchline is that it was all a MushroomSamba caused by Sam being UnsuspectinglySoused on these. The final bit is him looking uncertainly into an empty glass (with paper umbrella and fruit) and asking "What exactly is in a 'mai tai', anyway?"

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* After being unfairly characterized as a coward, ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'''s Jay Sherman decides to man up and shrug off his perceived wimpiness, and he starts by pounding down an especially frilly one of these.
