One of the perks of being an allrecipes.com Allstar Ambassador, is I get an issue of the allrecipes magazine. Naturally, I love the website. I’ve belonged to it as an official member since 2004 but had been surfing the site since 2000. That’s a long time, but that is also a good sign of a truly terrific website! In the recent issue there was a recipe for Brazilian Lemonade. I took that recipe and made Coconut Lime Rum Refresher!
Before I go much further I must warn you. This drink can be dangerous. By dangerous, I mean, it is so delicious, and the rum is so smooth, you may forget there is alcohol in it…..until you start to feel it. Of course, by then, it may not matter! 😉
I love the flavor of lime so much that when I saw the recipe in the magazine, I immediately knew I would be trying that recipe out. I was thinking that it would be perfect with some rum, then I happened to read the review where one person had actually made it subbing rum and coconut water for some of the water.
I had been dying to try the Captain Morgan’s White Rum and this drink presented the absolute opportunity to do so! What can I say, great ingredients, awesome drink! I will definitely keep this rum on my list of booze to keep on hand! Grumpy and I both enjoyed this drink. Before I had even told him what I was thinking of calling it, his words to me were “you know, this is really good, very refreshing”. Hence Coconut Lime Rum Refresher became born!
**Warning!! You cannot make just 1 recipe of this drink. If you do, then when the first pitcher disappears, much to your chagrin, you will have to go out and make yet another recipe. I suggest you make two pitchers. To save yourself time and mess….and allow for that afternoon siesta that you will likely be feeling like after a couple of drinks!**
