->''"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 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}}.

* ''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/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''.

'''Graysmith:''' It's an Aqua Velva. You wouldn't make fun of it if you tried it. \\

[[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]].
