    Pink Coconut Frost Cocktail

    This coconut, pink lemonade, and cherry flavored cocktail is sweet and refreshing and will make you feel like you’ve sailed away to a tropical island.

    Yes, it’s girly. Very. And maybe not the best cocktail to be posting going into Father’s Day weekend.

    Pink Coconut Frost Cocktail

    I’ve used a combination of rum and vodka, but you can use all rum or all vodka, or even coconut flavored rum if you want to go very heavy on the coconut.

    The pink lemonade concentrate and maraschino cherry juice give it a fabulous pink hue and plenty of sweetness to really bring out the flavor of the coconut. Be sure to use cream of coconut, not coconut milk. It’s really thick and you have to scoop it with a spoon. It will make a thick and creamy drink that will help you cool off on a hot summer day.

    A bridal shower would be so much fun to be in charge of! That’s one job I’ve never had.
