Spring has arrived. Actually, it feels like summer but who is complaining, right? The birds are chirping, the sun is hsining and flowers are bloming everywhere! One thing I love about the good weather is enjoying a fab cocktail on the back porch and enjoying the weather. Today, I have a cocktail that is perfect to welcome spring with – The Toasty Coconut Cocktail.
Sometimes when I’m looking to switch up my cocktail game, I love experimenting with new flavors and products. Lately, I have been trying to limit dairy so I have been using Silk’s products in various recipes. While perusing the store, I spotted their new Nutchello products in some pretty delicious flavors. I saw the Toasted Coconut + Cashew and couldn’t resist giving that a try. Nutchello also comes in these scrumptious Caramel Almond + Cashews and Dark Chocolate + Walnuts flavors. Any of these are a delicious sip on its own, stirred into coffee or whirled into a smoothie.
Y’all know how I love a good cocktail so I decided to break out the cocktail shaker and play on a familiar drink recipe that I remember from back in the day – the Toasted Almond but using the Toasted Coconut + Cashews Nutchello nut based beverage in lieu of the calorie laden half and half.
This cocktail couldn’t be easier to shake up. You can even fancy it up and toast a little coconut to rim the glass along with some turbinado sugar. It essentially is only a few ingredients into your favorite cocktail shaker, a few deft shakes over ice and pour. How easy was that?
This Toasty Coconut Cocktail will be a springtime favorite and to help you welcome spring, Silk has a fabulous coupon for $0.75 off a bottle of your favorite flavor of Nutchello. So – grab your cocktail shaker and whip up this silky sip!
