Any ideas for coconut cocktails?

Mrs Fang Jul 25, 2006 04:19 PM

I'm entertaining tonight and have four baby coconuts in the refrigerator. Thought I could scoop out the meat and blend with the juice and some Cruzan rum. What else would be good in the mix (other than pineapple or mint)?

    I'd add Banana Liqueur and a touch of real milk or cream.

          It tastes like "cake in a glass" which is the idea, as it's modelled after PG's famous coconut cake.

          Here is THE best coconut cocktail I've come across in a long time! It's called the Five C's (Chef Carter’s Coconut Cake Cocktail) and originated at the Peninsula Grill, Charleston, S.C.

          http://www.peninsulagrill.com/coconut...

          Adapted from a recipe by Robert Carter and Dennis Perry, Peninsula Grill, Charleston, S.C.

          1 cup dry Marsala
          1 ounce white-chocolate liqueur
          1 ounce coconut rum
          1/2 ounce hazelnut liqueur
          1/2 ounce vanilla-flavored vodka

          Fill a cocktail shaker two-thirds full of ice and add all of the ingredients. Shake for approximately 15 seconds and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

          While I'm not a huge coconut fan, I have been to the Peninsula Grill and loved the coconut cake on which this drink is based.

          Enjoy!

            Anything with Chocolate, Lychee, or Mango would taste good with Coconut (but not together, of course).

              We've been drinking coconut rum with plain (mt. gay) rum, lime juice, and simple syrup shaken and served like a martini. Seems like it would be fabulous with fresh coconut.

                Bushwackers...coconut, creme de cacao, rum, kahlua, a little milk or cream, and ice in a blender. Very sweet & dessertlike, but slips down dangerously easy.

                  When I was in St. Lucia, we used to drink BBC's after a day on the beach - banana, Bailey's and coconut milk - with rum, of course - whipped up in the blender with a bit of ice. Yummy!
