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!
