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.

  • 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.
