There is nothing better than a delicious cocktail to enjoy on a hot day. My new favourite thing to add to smoothies and cocktails at the moment is coconut water. I’m not a fan of coconut usually but adding it with other flavours works really really well. This weekend I made this simple and delicious coconut, pineapple and strawberry smoothie and made it in to a cocktail by adding a lovely measure of gin.
I made this in the blender and then used the smoothie to make the cocktail in the evening.
-330ml coconut water
-200ml pineapple juice
-250g fresh strawberries hulled
-a few mint leaves
-squeeze of lime juice
-Whizz it all together and serve.
-Add the gin to the drinks to taste to make it an alcohol cocktail.
I love adding a strawberry and paper straw to the drink.
