5 of Our Favorite Coconut Rum Cocktails
What's not to love about coconut rum? It gives you the same warm and fuzzy as regular rum, but goes down oh, so much smoother! If you're not down to drink it just on the rocks, it's also a fun, popular, and flavorful addition to cocktails. Here are five of our favorites:
Combine 2 oz of amaretto and 2 oz of coconut rum in a cocktail shaker fully of ice. Shake and pour into your favorite martini glass.
Combine 1 1/5 oz coconut rum with 4 oz orange juice and 1 oz cranberry juice in a glass over ice, stir well, and enjoy.
Coconut Cream Pie
Pour 1 oz vanilla schnapps, 1 oz coconut rum, and 3 oz cream over ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake, strain, and pour into a cocktail glass.
Pina Colada Royale
Combine 3 oz rum, 2 oz coconut rum, 3 oz crushed pineapples, and 1 scoop ice cream (vanilla) in a blender with 1 1/5 cups of crushed ice. Blend until frozen, add more ice if you like a thicker consistency. Pour into a parfait glass and serve!
Simple Rum Punch
Pour 4 oz Hawaiian Punch, 2 oz orange liquor, and 2 oz coconut rum over ice in a highball glass. Stir and enjoy!
