Lime in the Coconut Cocktail Recipe and Summer Entertaining Tips

Nothing says summer like the arrival of May Long Weekend, and if you’ve been hunting for tips and drink recipes to make the first long weekend of the summer as “cool” as it can be, you’re in luck!

Minute Maid has partnered with the experts in the Canadian Living test kitchen to create some delicious and refreshing drinks to keep you cool when you’re firing up the barbeque, heading out on the boat or entertaining your friends this weekend!

For a tasty drink with minimal work, an ice-cold Lime in the Coconut Cocktail is sure to be a hit with both young and old!


The best thing about this lime coconut cocktail is that the alcohol can be left out of the recipe and added afterwards to individual glasses, so that children and non-drinkers can still enjoy the beverage, while those that choose can cool down with a drink that has a little more kick!

And since it’s all whipped up in the blender, you can make enough for a crowd in just minutes.

My boys and I both loved the combination of creamy coconut and tangy lime in this unique beverage and it was a great way of beating the heat!

  1. We always make sure we have lots of drinks on hand & snacks for impromptu gatherings throughout the summer. :)

    my tip is, alwasy have cold beer/wine and punch ready to go, ice cream for the kids and you can never have too many bbq sauces. variety on the bbq is fantastic

  3. My favorite summer entertaining tip is to have everyone bring something and I provide the drinks. It is fun to set up a make your own drink station…I even make a special area for the kids to make their own creations too!

    1. Recipe for this drink should not rely on a prepackaged Mix… should tell viewers how to make it from scratch

        1. They should’ve got permission from the “Harry Nielsen” estate, to use the words “lime in the coconut” which is a name of one of his songs.. should be copyrighted
