Wondering what to mix with coconut rum? I’ve got you. This Coconut Daiquiri with Grapefruit is refreshing enough to make you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation with just one sip.
Coconut Daiquiri Tips and Tricks
Use Coconut Rum or Liqueur
While you absolutely can use any white rum and still get a refreshing drink, the milky white color and sweet flavor in this tropical cocktail come primarily from the coconut rum. I used Captain Morgan Loco Nut, which is a blend of rum and coconut liqueur.
You could also make this with Malibu, Bacardi, or any other coconut-flavored white rum!
It’s Best with Fresh Citrus
Opt for fresh lime and grapefruit! You will only need about one half of a lime and one quarter of a grapefruit. Citrus generally lasts for 2-3 days after its cut if it’s covered and stored in the refrigerator.
Green tip: Millions of food is wasted annually in the U.S. Avoid wasting your citrus by wrapping unused citrus and storing it in the refrigerator. It will last another 2-3 days.
Don’t Shake Up Your Club Soda
If you want to use a cocktail shaker for this Coconut Daiquiri, you absolutely can! Just use it to shake up your rum, coconut water, lime juice, and grapefruit juice, add that to a glass, and finish with your club soda.
Shaking up carbonated drinks will most likely cause a mess and it steals some of your refreshing bubbles.
Why You Should Make this Coconut Daiquiri with Grapefruit Juice
- It’s tropical. That subtly sweet and always refreshing coconut will totally transport you to an island in the sun!
- It’s fresh. The fresh-squeezed juice from the grapefruit and lime is like summer in a glass.
- It’s fizzy. That club soda to finish gives it a bubbly pop.
