Ok I’m calling it. THIS is the drink of the summer for 2017 (if you’re over the age of 21). Coconutty, a touch of sweet, ridiculously easy to make and so very refreshing! We’ve served this to several friends who all LOVED it. I am not generally a “featured cocktail” type of person but this will be the featured cocktail at all our BBQs and get togethers this summer. If you like to offer your friends and family something different when you’re hosting give this a try and let me know what you think!
So this Captain Morgan Loconut is seriously good enough on it’s own (and gluten free too). Just the right amount of sweetness without being too sweet for me, and that is hard to do. If you don’t like coconut at all you’re out of luck with this drink but even if you’re on the fence – give it a try!
You’ll need Captain Morgan Loconut, coconut water (so far Zico has been my favorite with this drink but it might be fun to try the different flavored ones to mix it up) and ice.
Add ice to a cocktail shaker along with 3oz of Loconut and 2oz of coconut water. Shake well, pour into a tall glass and enjoy responsibly.
I love the bit of froth at the top!
So this is our favorite recipe but Captain Morgan has one on their site called Loco & Coco that uses twice as much coconut water and strains it into a glass. Give that one a try if you want to taste less alcohol and/or don’t want the froth at the top. If you want to be super fancy you could blend this up for a frosty drink too.
But seriously, this is one of my favorite mixed drinks in a LONG time and I’m usually a really simple gin martini or red wine girl. So when you’re hosting your next summer dinner or party give this one a try and let me know what you think. So far everyone we’ve offered it to has loved it and may have gone and bought their own bottle of Loconut.
P.S. This is not sponsored by the Captain, I just thought it was good enough worth sharing!
