Dreaming of a little beach vacay, but just can’t get away? Sometimes getting together with a friend or two for an afternoon of relaxation with a cocktail or two is just what you need. Summer time means I like bringing a beachier vibe to our cocktail bar, and this cocktail is totally perfect to sip during the long summer afternoons.
This could not be any easier – it’s only a few ingredients:
In a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in 1.5 oz of coconut rum, 3 oz. of pineapple juice, and a splash of blue curaçao. Shake for 15-20 seconds until well chilled. Fill a glass (or jar) with ice, then pour over the cocktail. Give it a squeeze of lime – and you’re good to go.
Of course, please drink responsibly – and if you don’t want to include alcohol, you can substitute by using lemon-lime soda with a couple of drops of coconut extract in lieu of the rum. It’s delicious either way (but sometimes you’ve gotta have the real thing!)
