Make this Naughty Snowman Coconut Cooler to help you through the winter blues! One sip of this will bring you right to the islands!
Winter is not the most wonderful time of the year for me.
It’s fine, I mean. Christmas is awesome, New Years Even is fun, but after that it’s SO long until anything fun happens.
So we need to get in there and make our own fun!
This Naughty Snowman Cooler is just that.
And super delicious too. Which is really important when making cocktails, they have to taste as good as they look or no one will drink them and then no one will get naughty…
Or go to bed at 9 like some of us do at our house.
So we’re just getting over Christmas here, cleaning up the decorations – although Christie doesn’t let me take the tree down until after New Years – but some of them are getting out away.
And on to New Years! Champagne, cocktails, fun appetizers…all the food. I love it.
We staying local so it’s going to be a fun night for us, no driving involved.
And we’re also getting together with some of our friends that we went on our most favorite vacation ever with to St. John.
I’m counting the day until we get back there, sending our good thoughts out to them and hoping they get back up and running soon.
But back to this Naughty Snowman Cooler.
I got the idea for the look of the drink from a recipe I was looking at in Cooking Light. But there’s nothing light about my version so don’t get confused.
It’s the perfect drink for entertaining since you can make it up ahead of time in large amounts, then just pour it into glasses with a few pomegranate seeds for garnish and some mint.
And it’s perfect for winter because it looks just like melted snow – or a melted, boozy snowman right in your glass.
Oh, and why is this cocktail naughty?
