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 and lime drink that combines all the flavors synonymous with summer. 

Coconut Lime Cocktail

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 bit more citrus.

A key ingredient here is cream of coconut.  This ingredient is thick sweetened coconut cream and is key in making piña coladas and other tropical drinks. It is different from coconut cream you can find in can at a grocery store. Be sure to get this sweet version.

Pair this delicious coconut flavor with fresh squeezed lime and rum and you have the perfect summer cocktail. It’s a lime and coconut drink you will return to time and time again to quench your thirst.
