Pink Coconut

Thursday......actually this is technically the last "summer" Thursday for our second oldest son.  Our oldest started High School over two weeks ago.  Our second oldest is out on a movie play date with our neighbors and my girls......are actually.......SLEEPING!!  I don't want to type that word to loud in case I jinx it.  

Summer.......it has been fun.  It has been filled with our oldest's baseball games and practices, our second oldest's birthday, Tae Kwon Do as well as his advancing up a belt in Tae Kwon Do as well.  We've gone to the park, we taken a trip to the lake, and thrown two family vacations into one as well.  I think we have done well this summer.  

Saying that, summer is not over yet and I felt the need to create a cocktail that proves that.  For a few weeks now this little bottle of pink lemonade has been staring me down each and every time I open up that darn fridge.  Today.......I decided to put it into use.  I wanted to create a delicious, yet easy cocktail to make and enjoy on a warm summer day.  Nailed It!!  I am enjoying this one......a little too much.  The coconut and pink lemonade flavors together create magic in your glass!

Here is my recipe for a Pink Coconut:

  • 2 ounces coconut rum
  • 4 ounces pink lemonade
In a tall cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice, pour in the two ingredients above.  Give you cocktail a good stir and enjoy!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to beautiful August days.

Cheers!

  2. I wonder how much difference there is between pink and yellow lemonade. Pink is sweeter, isn't it? I had some yellow lemonade, so I tried this, and thought it a little odd. Not bad, but odd. Perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for it.

    1. I think there is a little difference, and my pink lemonade has raspberry flavor in it too (just realized that), so that's what probably made a bigger difference, lol.
