Coco Minty Cocktail

I tried a new cool coconut cocktail that caused my friend, Jill, to swoon. It was one of the last hot days of summer as we sat by the pool and sipped this minty-coco -nutty refresher. Reminiscent of the pina coloada, the mint was a tasty substitute for pineapple.


fresh mint
1 can of coconut cream
1 cup of coconut rum
spash of lime juice
splash of club soda – optional


Bruise or muddle the mint and mix all, but the optional club soda in a small pitcher or in two tall glasses over ice. Or, as in a pina colada, you could blend until frothy in the blender.

If you like a lighter drink with some fizz, fill to the top of the glass with some cub soda.

Garnish with a lime wheel or sprig of mint.
