Typical. Whenever there’s just a hint more sunshine than usually, I start daydreaming about summer. And when there’s summer, there’s summer drinks. So I started searching a little to prepare myself (a little too early, yes I realise) with recipes for those barbecues, girls nights on the patio and afternoon chats on the sun-lounger with Grandma.
The one thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of the time, coconut water is used for those ‘skinny’ or ‘healthy’ versions of cocktails. Huzzah! I kept this reoccurring theme running and I’ve actually made a little list of the ver best. Thank the lord I am actually working with ZICO Coconut Water so I have an excuse for making this and I don’t just look like a coconut water obsessed woman!
Most of the time it’s best to use water fresh from a coconut, but if you can’t get your hands on them or they’re too much of a hassle to open, carry, or use half of and store for later, ZICO comes to the rescue because it’s legitimately 100% coconut water. No nasties. Here are my favourite recipes that you can make this summer with them! (Or you can trial them before, say, this week. No one’s judging….)
1. Coconut Margarita
2. Strawberry & Coconut Water Cocktail
3. Pineapple & Coconut Slushy
4. Coconut Gin & Tonic
5. Coconut Lavender Lemonade
6. Raspberry Mango Coconut Water Smoothies
7. Buko Pandan Drink
8. Ginger-Mint Coconut Water Cooler
9. 3-Ingredient Coconut Peach Cooler
10. Coconut Lime Cilantro Cooler
And if you’re still
stuck for inspiration, maybe whip up some of my Banana Cream Floats
? Both a delicious drink, snack and
dessert. Look at me just ticking all the boxes.
