When a picture of these drinks showed up in my Facebook feed, I knew that I had to make them. They looked so fun and tasty. The original recipe doesn’t include any alcohol, but I couldn’t help myself and added a little rum.
I found this recipe on the blog Dessert Now, Dinner Later!
You’ll need (makes 1 drink):
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- 1 1/2 oz. (1 shot) light rum (can be omitted if you’d prefer a mocktail)
- 1 12 oz. can of cola (I used Coke Zero, because I’m a fiend for it)
- 2-3 small scoops coconut ice cream (vanilla would be good, too)
Squeeze the 1/2 lime into the bottom of a glass. Add the light rum and whatever pop/soda you’re using. I used Dr. Pepper for my husband’s drink.
Add the scoops of ice cream and stir gently with a spoon or straw. It should foam up a bit, like you see in the pictures.
Garnish with a lime, if you’re feeling fancy, and enjoy!
