When the weather warms up I like my rum drinks! Here’s a Pineapple Coconut Rum Cooler with a splash of ginger-lime simple syrup that’s refreshing and not too sweet.
This delicious cocktail has white rum and coconut rum, pineapple coconut juice, a simple syrup made with lime and fresh ginger and topped with club soda for some bubbles. It’s similar to my Rum Cucumber Cooler but this time I replaced the cucumber juice with pineapple coconut juice. The simple syrup is just sugar, lime juice and ginger. Garnish with some pineapple, a lime slice and you’ll feel very tropical! If you really want to get fancy rim the glasses with coconut (I thought about that after I took the picture).Print
