While on vacation in Punta Cana, Shane and I took advantage of the all-inclusive beverage selection. After trying out a few different concoctions, we each developed a couple “usuals.” One was refreshing (gin + club soda w/ lime) and one was decadent: the coco loco.
Ohhhh, the coco loco. The pure tasty decadence alone made it hard to ignore the insane amount of calories they could fit in an 8 ounce glass, so we tried to limit them. One during the day, and then maybe one again after dinner. Hey, that’s moderation when you’re on vacation
Loco for coco locos!!!
Obviously, this was a drink I’d be sure to replicate at home. And this Saturday, that’s exactly what I did.
1 c. coconut water
1/2 can (about 1/2 c) of real cream of coconut
3 oz rum (optional)
Handful of ice
Dash of cinnamon
Place the first two ingredients + 1 ice cube into the blender and blend. Add the ice cubes one by one until the desired consistency is reached.
What’s your favorite frou-frou/fruity/sweet drink?
Hope you’re having a great Tuesday! And if you’re not, then maybe you should make a coco loco when you get home
I’m off to go train a couple clients…then I think it’ll be a leftovers night in this casa for dinner. Hasta manana!
