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. My tip is to keep things fun and simple! Have Burgers, hot dogs, marshmallows, drinks and snacks on havd so people can cook whenever they want & we spend it playing volleyball, in the pool or hot tub

  2. nothing like having watermelon cubed, juiced or straight up allowing kids the drip all over and follow with a cool bath

  3. have lots of ice, (last year I made glasses our of ice that had flowers in them) frozen or cold desserts and make it a pot luck appy party
