Frozen Tropical Joy Juice is a cocktail that was invented in the 1960s and has been around since then. The cocktail was invented by two bartenders, Jeff "Beachbum" Berry and Steve Crane in Tuscon, Arizona. The couple found the drink to be an interesting way to use with all the grapefruit that they were harvesting at the time. They were experimenting with different cocktails when they came up with this one-of-a-kind drink.
It is made up of three ingredients: rum, pineapple juice and banana liqueur. The combination of these three ingredients makes for a refreshing drink that's perfect for any time of the year.

Pineapple wedge for garnish
1. In a blender, combine the gingerroot, pineapple juice, banana liqueur, and coconut rum. Blend.
