This Bikini Martini is full of tropical flavors! Coconut Rum, Pineapple and Vodka make the most beautiful drink! It’s paradise in a martini glass!
I have to be honest, unless I am hanging out with one of my girlfriends on a mom’s night out, I rarely drink cocktails -wait a minute! Are margaritas considered cocktails? Yes? Then I’m lying – I am a big cocktail fan… anyhow, I decided to go all mixologist and give this martini a try!
I LOVE coconut everything and this martini kind of reminds me of piña coladas in Hawaii without the heaviness of it. Who wouldn’t like that?
Even though the color effect really makes me look like an expert at cocktail mixing (I am not! Trust me). It couldn’t be easier. So go ahead and impress your friends at your next party. In the meantime, make one for yourself and enjoy these amazing Caribbean flavors.
I know this is the only bikini I will be showing off today!
For the Kids:
If you want to avoid the inevitable chants of “mommy, mom, mom, what are you drinking? Mom,mom,mom, what is that? Why is it yellow and red? Can I have a cherry???”, you may want to try this kid friendly version.
So here it goes, you already have the pineapple juice and the grenadine handy, all you need is some coconut water to cut on the sweetness.
Pour over ice and garnish with a chunk of pineapple and a maraschino cherry (or two, or three, or four…..you get the idea).
- If you are having a cocktail party and need appetizer ideas, this Hot and Cheesy Crab Dip is always a crowd pleaser!
- You may need:
- 4 oz coconut rum
- 3 oz vodka
- 4 oz pineapple juice
- 2 dashes grenadine
- Pineapple chunks optional
- Maraschino cherries optional
Combine the coconut rum, vodka and pineapple juice in a drink shaker with a couple of ice cubes. Shake firmly. Pour in a martini glass, add a couple of dashes of grenadine in the middle. The grenadine will set at the bottom of the glass
