Although we wouldn’t advise mixing your drinks, cocktails are different, and they will get you that unique feeling that you will enjoy with your friends and family members.   Luckily, you can make your simple cocktail at home by mixing a few ingredients in a glass, bowl, or cocktail shaker.

Coconut is always an excellent summer cocktail ingredient, and if you have ever tasted the pina colada, then you understand what we mean. Therefore, do you wish to enjoy a fantastic homemade coconut cocktail in your next Greek Chef catered event? Worry no more since we got you covered. Here are some of the best coconut cocktail recipes that will automatically get you in the mood to party and celebrate.

Pina Colada

Pina Colada

We had to start with this one since it is the most famous coconut cocktail. In fact, there is no coconut drink that is more distinctive than the Pina Colada. Furthermore, you can prepare it in a few simple steps. Simply throw the pineapple juice, coconut, the rum, and some ice in your blender and let the fresh smell trickle down your nose as you wait for your Pina colada cocktail to be ready. In just a few minutes, you will have your refreshing Pina Colada.

Caribbean Coco

Caribean Coco

This is another fantastic coconut cocktail that you can enjoy on your next Greek chef catered event. To prepare the Caribbean Coco, you will need coconut milk-based yogurt, El Dorado 3 year rum, lime juice, any simple syrup, clement coco rhum, and the dash Angostura bitters. To prepare your Caribbean Coco, shake all your ingredients with ice and strain into a coconut over ice. Finally, garnish with a generous sprig of mint, and you are ready to go.

Coco Punch

If you can’t prepare the Pina Colada, then the Coco Punch will do fine on your next Greek chef catered event. Upon your first sip of this amazing cocktail, you will encounter the tastes of coconut milk, dark syrupy rum, and the nutmeg. Shaken with the banana liqueur and the aged rum, the coconut milk is carefully transformed into an incredible brunch cocktail that you will love.

Simply add all your ingredients except for the nutmeg to your cocktail shaker and wait for the magic to happen. Don’t forget to add ice to your shaker as well. Strain the contents into a glass or bowl; add fresh ice and freshly grated nutmeg, and you are good to go.

Colada Fresca

Colada Fresca

Preparing the Colada Fresca is also simple and straightforward. You will need fresh coconut water, cacique guaro rum, spiced honey syrup, cut pineapple, mint leaves, and mandarin lime juice. Remember the fact that mandarin lime juice looks like a lime but the flesh and juice is a little bit bright orange. If you can’t find the mandarin lime juice, feel free to substitute it with regular lime. Muddle your mint, and the cut pineapple in a cocktail shaker then add the rest of the ingredients and shake well with ice. Double strain the contents into a glass with ice and garnish with a slice of cut pineapple and a mint leaf and enjoy your coconut cocktail.

 

Why coconut

So, why should we stress on coconut and not any other ingredient? Well, various studies have proved that coconut oil and water contain a lot of healthy saturated fats that are good for your health. These fats can increase the rate of fat burning in your body which can help you shed off the excess weight.

Coconut water and oils also kill harmful microorganisms, and that is the primary reason why people that eat a lot of coconut oil are generally healthy. Lastly, it is also good to mention that coconut can protect your skin, hair, and dental health in various ways.
