Coconut Lime Breeze Cocktail Recipe

Coconuts are alien to me. Before today, I'd never broken one open and looked at the flesh, drank the water and realised how hairy they are. Maybe I live a sheltered life? Or maybe I've just never had the urge to buy a coconut before. At only 78p each in Asda, I picked up some hairy babies and brought them home, imagining up what I could make them in too. Naturally, my first thought was cocktail related, and thus - Coconut Lime Breeze is born.

Ash helped me get in to the coconut by bashing it with the blunt end of a meat knife... my female strength was really lacking today, but he got in to it with a few hits and drained the water out in to a jug. I strained the water through a tea strainer a few times to get out some hairs which had fallen in.

To make a Coconut Lime Breeze, you will need:

50ml coconut water (fresh!)
50ml vodka
525ml lime juice
Lemonade to top

Combine all the ingredients except the lemonade in a shaker and shake! Strain over lots of ice, top with lemonade and serve with an cocktail umbrella (obviously...)

It's the perfect drink to help you cool down in this crazy English heat, hence why I named it breeze - because it's exactly what I need right now! There's still some coconut water left so check back in the week to see what else I make from it! Rosie x
