With the fresh start to 2018, we’re all about healthy cocktails right now on Polka Dot Bride and today’s creation is a healthy take on a pina colada. This fresh take combines the citrus flavours of lime with the sweetness of lychee.
We swapped the cream for coconut milk, and thanks to a fun delivery from Coco Vodka, swapped the rum for a vodka-spiked coconut water (think of all those electrolytes!). Lychees, when fresh make a tropical tasting addition to this cocktail, but the regular canned variety are delicious too (especially when the syrup doubles as a little extra flavour!). The lime rounding it out with a tropical citrus twist.
- One can original Coco Vodka 250ml
- Four lychees (canned are fine!)
- 10ml lychee syrup (juice from the can)
- 30ml coconut milk
- 15ml lime juice
In a cocktail shaker, combine coconut milk, lime juice and lychee syrup, lychees and shake well.
In a low ball glass, add ice, and add coconut mixture
Top with Coco Vodka and stir
