This Jack Frost cocktail recipe is so delicious that you will want it year round, not just in the winter. It’s tasty and pretty!
This Jack Frost cocktail is such a delicious drink. I ask myself all the time when I make it, “Why do we drink it only in the winter? Is it because of the name?”
I’m thinking, yes. But you know what? That would be a crying shame; an opportunity to have a sob fest, complete with beating the chest, rending the clothes and pulling the hair.
Does that sound extreme to you?
Yes, it does to me, too, but I’ve tasted this delicious cocktail, so I know how wrong it is to drink it only during the winter months.
Here’s more proof that you should drink it year round; wouldn’t a frozen cocktail be BETTER in the summer when it’s hot outside and not freezing cold?
You could argue that we would drink this delicious Jack Frost cocktail inside during the winter, where it is warm. But imagine drinking it outside at the side of the pool or on the veranda!
Perfect either way.
Vodka vs Rum
Some people make this delicious Jack Frost cocktail with vodka. And while that is good, in my opinion, this drink is BETTER with rum. And not just regular ole rum, but coconut rum! It is glorious!! Simply glorious. But don’t just take my word for it. Make it and see!
How to mix the Jack Frost Cocktail
Here we have coconut rum, blue Curacao, cream of coconut and pineapple juice! The other ingredients in the photo are simple syrup and unsweetened coconut. Those two ingredients are used for wetting the glasses and rimming them with coconut.
Let’s get started.
I get my blender container and set it on the table. Also, I measure out 2 ounces of coconut rum!
I pour it lovingly in the blender.
Next, I measure out 2 ounces of blue Curacao.
I pour it into the blender to meet up with the coconut rum.
Time for the cream of coconut. This is not the same thing as coconut cream. It’s a specialty item that you can get either in the grocery store or the liquor store.
I pour it into the blender.
Now for the pineapple juice. I measure out 4 ounces. Take a gander at the blender container. Doesn’t it look fun with the layers?
I pour it into the blender.
Let’s take a looksee at it.
I add 2 to 3 cups of ice into the blender, cap it and blend it all until it is smooth and thick. At this point, I coat the rims of my glasses with unsweetened coconut.
Time to drink the Jack Frost Cocktail
I pour the luscious Jack Frost cocktail into the glasses, being careful not to hit the coconut rim.
