Skinny Pineapple Coconut Cocktail is a fizzy, low calorie drink that is perfect for summertime.
I had a baby, guys! Baby Girl #2, Rosie, joined us almost two weeks ago. She’s pretty amazing and I’ll have an official introduction post soon, but let’s talk about parenting a three year old and an newborn for a minute.
Motherhood is not for the faint of heart. Maternity leave is going a little differently this time around and most nights, I’m ready for a drink.
SKINNY PINEAPPLE COCONUT COCKTAIL
I’m often too tired to drink one, but that’s besides the point. There’s no time for “sleep when the baby sleeps” this time. I am tired and slightly frazzled at moments.
But I’m also thirsty and I found the perfect drink for the summer.
I have about 20 pounds of baby weight (& brownie weight…) to lose at this point so I need something that is fizzy, fun, and flavorful, but not full of calories.
I found the perfect mixer – Sparkling Ice fruit flavored waters. They make beautiful, skinny cocktail mixers and even better, I can order them right on Amazon from the comfort of my couch/rocking chair, because I am not brave enough to take both girls out in public yet.
Can I say I’ve been looking forward to a cocktail for oh, about nine months, without sounding like a lush? I hope so. Because I have been.
This skinny cocktail is super simple – light and fizzy with Coconut Pineapple Sparking Ice, your favorite white rum, and a dash of triple sec. Easy peasy.
If you order the Sparkling Ice variety pack from Amazon, you’ll get to try flavors like Black Raspberry, Kiwi Strawberry, Orange Mango, and Cherry Limeade. I have visions of summer slushies – with or without alcohol. There are 15 flavors to try and they all have zero calories.
- 1/2 cup Coconut Pineapple Sparkling Ice
- 2 jiggers 3 oz white rum
- splash of Triple Sec
- ice - crushed ice would be even better
- fresh pineapple for garnish optional
- Pour the Coconut Pineapple Sparkling Ice over ice cubes.
- Add the white rum.
- Pour in a splash of Triple Sec.
- Stir to combine & enjoy!
