Living in the city means that you have to keep up with the fast paced lifestyle most people have, which is the reason why once in a while we take a break to get away from it all. This quick and easy cocktail recipe reminds me of just that. Each refreshing sip transports me to a relaxing getaway. It is a perfect cooler for a warm night or a fun drink for afternoon barbecues.
For this recipe we used coconut flavored rum since it is readily available, but if you have fresh coconuts available, you can add coconut juice and meat to this drink and use white rum instead.
4 cups chopped fresh or frozen strawberries
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
4 cups ice cubes
2 cups coconut-flavored rum
Fresh coconut for garnish
Fresh strawberries for garnish
Place the strawberries, lemon juice and sugar in a blender. Blend it for one minute or until it is smooth. Add the ice cubes and rum and blend it for another 1-2 minutes or until the ice is crushed. Adjust the taste and place more rum if desired. Transfer the drink to a large pitcher or into individual glasses. Garnish with fresh coconuts and strawberries before serving.
