The sun is shining which means I can kick back and relax with a tasty tropical drink in hand. These rays have me reminiscing about sitting on the rooftop at Fleetwood’s in Lahaina, Maui sipping on a tropical cocktail. To transport me back I’m sharing the best Lime In The Coconut drink recipe. It took years of trial and error, but I’ve finally mastered this drink recipe…and if it was acceptable, I’d swim around in a vat of it because it’s that magically delicious. It’s by far one of my favorite beverages.
Listen To The Song While You Shake Up The Cocktail
When you’re on a tropical vacation, there are palm trees, a warm salty ocean breeze, sand on your toes…and more often than not, a fruity cocktail on ice, garnished with a drink umbrella. Press play for ambiance and mix on.

The most important ingredient for this cocktail is Cream Of Coconut. While wandering around the local liquor store, I spied it in the mixer aisle. Thinking back to my time in Hawaii, I remembered watching the bartender mix my tasty beverage. He was squeezing a thick mystery syrup from a white bottle. Yup, this had to be the secret sauce I was missing for my masterpiece. Without wasting any more time, let’s get on the coconut train and choo-choo to Tropicstown, shall we?

Now find go yourself a patio and start humming some Harry Nilsson. “Put the lime in the coconut, you drink ’em bot’ together. Put the lime in the coconut, and you’ll feel better. Put the lime in the coconut, drink ’em bot’ up. Put the lime in the coconut and call me in the morning. Woo-oo-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh. I said Doctor…Doctor…”
