A Staten Island Ferry is a cocktail consisting of equal parts Malibu Rum and pineapple juice served over ice. In flavor it resembles a Piña Colada (due to the coconut flavor of Malibu rum). As it does not require coconut cream, it is thus more easily prepared in bars that lack the specialty ingredients and blender that a Piña Colada would typically require.

Staten Island is home to at least one tiki bar, Jade Island, but the name of the cocktail is a tongue-in-cheek (i.e. sarcastic) reference to the fact that Staten Island is far from the tropics and visitors desiring an "island atmosphere" must often make do with the improvised ingredients at hand.
