Ready for Easter this weekend? We loved this cute and fun cocktail. I honestly will be making it throughout the year since it was so tasty! I loved that it wasn’t too sweet and the flavors married well together without anything standing out. It was also great with and without the coconut rim. Check back on Wednesday I’ll have some fun things to do with Easter eggs!
(Adapted from Inspired by Charm)
1.5 ounces whipped vodka (or vanilla vodka)
1.5 ounces coconut rum
2 ounces half and half
1/2 ounce cream of coconut
Splash of pineapple juice
Honey, chopped sweetened coconut, and marshmallow to garnish
Begin with two shallow dishes. To one, add a teaspoon of honey. To the other, add the sweetened coconut. (I recommend giving the coconut a rough chop before using.) Rim the edge of the martini glass first in the honey and then in the coconut. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the whipped vodka, coconut rum, half and half, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice. Shake vigorously; then strain into your prepared martini glass.
Using a knife, make a small slit in a marshmallow. Slip the marshmallow on the side of the martini glass.
