This Lime in the Coconut Cocktail Recipe combines fresh lime juice, coconut milk and crushed ice for a refreshing summer daiquiri! The non-alcoholic version is just as good and resembles a Brazilian Lemonade!

It is hot here in Central PA.

Are there really people who like this sticky humidity and feels-like temps of 110+?? Honestly, I just can’t imagine how anybody enjoys this nonsense.

I’d love to be in a position where I could chase 70 degree temps around the globe. I mean, I know a lot of us would like to have the freedom to do that, but after this past week’s heat wave, I am ready to sell the house, buy an RV and hit the road. Now.

Instead, I’ll settle for a refreshing cocktail to help cool me off! These Lime Coconut coolers hit the spot for all of us.

It’s a bit of a cross between a slushie and a milkshake and goes down so smoothly! I actually made a double batch so my kids could have one before I added the rum. Then I added a little rum to make it alcoholic for my husband and I.

I love how frothy it gets and stays! We popped one in the fridge for a couple hours until my husband got home and it stayed nice and frothy for him that whole time!

What is a Brazilian Lemonade?

This Lime in the Coconut Cocktail is very similar to a Brazilian Lemonade. The key to a Brazilian Lemonade is that it actually uses limes. Fresh limes. I know in my Orange Crush recipe I mentioned that orange juice is preferable but you could use orange juice in a pinch.

For this recipe, you really need fresh lime juice, though. Please!!

But back to a Brazilian Lemonade… the majority of recipes that you’ll find will have you using sweetened condensed milk to add a touch of sweetness. I didn’t want to open an entire can of sweetened condensed milk, though, just to use a couple tablespoons.

So instead I decided to use a little bit of granulated sugar to cut through the tart lime flavor and add a hint of sweetness. If you’re a huge fan of tart drinks, feel free to leave out the sugar completely.

How to Make a Lime in the Coconut Cocktail Recipe

Coconut Lime Cocktail with Rum Recipe Ingredients sit on a wooden countertop. Ingredients include a can of lite coconut milk, 2 limes, a bottle of Run Cream, and toasted coconut flakes

Start by cutting one of the limes in half and then cut two thin slices out of the middle for garnish. Then you can use the rest of the limes to juice into your blender.

Add the crushed ice, coconut milk and sugar to your blender and blend until smooth. You can add more or less ice depending on how slushie you want it to be.

I used a lite coconut milk for mine to help cut down on calories, but feel free to use a full fat can of coconut milk if you prefer. It will make it a little creamier.

I added a toasted coconut garnish around the rims of my glasses, but it’s totally optional. If you want to add the coconut garnish, pour about a tablespoon of light corn syrup into a bowl. Dip the rims of your glasses into the corn syrup to coat the complete rim. Then dip it into a bowl filled with toasted coconut. You can place these glasses in the fridge until you’re ready to fill!

You can leave out the alcohol to make a virgin version for kids or those who don't want to drink alcohol. Without the rum, it's similar to a Brazilian lemonade.

Fresh lime juice makes a huge difference in this recipe, so go with fresh instead of from concentrate.
