This recipe for a refreshing coconut lime cocktail will take your tastebuds to a tropical island. All the flavor of summer, right in your kitchen.
12 years ago my husband and I set off on our honeymoon to Mexico. This vacation, in a beautiful ocean side resort, was a wedding gift which made it possible for us to actually take a honeymoon. We spent our time relaxing, taking in the culture and enjoying the weather. Our resort even had a swim up bar in the pool where we enjoyed authentic piña coladas. Being young and just out of college this was an amazing experience, one we have yet to repeat. My husband and I still reminisce about those piña coladas, they were seriously delicious. In an effort to capture that tropical taste and feeling, I made a refreshing coconut lime cocktail that combines all the flavors synonymous with summer.

Grab a shaker and a few simple ingredients to make this simple coconut lime rum drink. Not as heavy as a true piña colada, but just as delicious with a big more citrus.
