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.

We all know those cocktails, the ones that transport you. Most coconut cocktails do this for me. One sip and I’m on a beach somewhere swaying on a hammock under a palm tree, toes in the sand.

But you don’t have to leave your home to get that feeling. Just whip up this easy, 5 ingredient Coconut Daiquiri and you’re there.

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.

  • 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons
  • This cocktail is best with coconut rum,  but white rum works in a pinch!
  • I highly recommend using fresh-squeezed lime and grapefruit juice.
  • If you want to use a cocktail shaker, just leave out the club soda—or add it on top. It’s best not to shake carbonated drinks up!
