This Jack Frost Cocktail is perfect for all your holiday parties! A frozen, boozy drink that’s perfect for snuggling up by the fire!
We love making festive cocktails for holidays and parties! Also be sure to check out this Peppermint White Russian drink and this brunch favorite, a Christmas Mimosa!
What Is In A Jack Frost Cocktail?
Of course there’s different recipes all over the internet land, but for this Jack Frost Cocktail recipe we used vodka, blue curacao and, pineapple juice and cream of coconut.
So you get that boozy, tropical flavor but mixed in a Christmasy-holiday package. It’s the perfect drink for snuggling up by the fire!
Other versions of this cocktail recipe use rum, which we think is a perfectly acceptable swap out, do feel free to try it with rum, too if that’s what you prefer!
How Do You Make A Jack Frost Drink?
If you choose to rim your glass, which we think is kind of a must for this drink recipe, start by doing that first. Pour a think layer of light corn syrup on a shallow plate, then add a handful of shredded sweetened coconut to another plate.
Rum the rim of the glass around in the corn syrup first and them dip into the coconut, making sure to press the coconut onto the rim of the glass so that it sticks.
Blend the cocktail ingredients in a blender with ice and the simply pour it into your rimmed glass! These Jack Frost Cocktails are best enjoyed right away, nut if they start to get slushy on you, just add them back to the blender for a few seconds.
Can You Make These Drinks Ahead Of Time For A Party?
As with all frozen or blended cocktails, they are better made and served right away. But you can get a little ahead of the game by rimming all the glasses first and measuring out the ingredients for the cocktail.
Then when it’s time to serve, all you need to do is add ice, blend and pour!
What Does This Drink Taste Like?
This Jack Frost Cocktail reminds me most of a Piña Colada, but instead of that signature yellow color we have a blue color here from the blue curacao. Blue Curacao has a sweet orange flavor, strangely enough, even though it has a bright blue color to it.
This winter cocktail is perfect for serving at your Christmas or New Year’s Eve parties, or just a fun winter time happy hour!
Cn You Make These Cocktails Non-Alcoholic For The Kids?
Sure you can! Obviously we’re going to omit the blue curacao and vodka, and leave the pineapple juice and cream of coconut. For the blue color you can easily swap out food coloring, then blend the drink up and serve! Another idea for serving this mocktail is topping it off with a colorless soda like ginger ale or Sprite.
Fun Garnish Ideas!
If you really want to take these drinks over the top, serve them with a white umbrella and a fruit garnish! Slices of orange and pineapple will play well with the flavors of the pinapple juice and blue curacao. And of course, you can add a maraschino cherry for color!
