The shopping, the wrapping, the cooking, the baking, the parties, the family, the family, the family. PASS THE DRINKS, PLEASE! The holidays are so joyous and undoubtedly the most wonderful time of the year (aside from that glorious week when your sitting on the warm, toasty beaches of Hatteras Island), but with all of the excitement there is also a need for a little down time, so why not channel that week on Hatteras Island with a holiday-appropriate, coastal cocktail...or six? Whatever your pace, try one of these delicious Coconut Cream Martinis, sit back and relax while visions of the Outer Banks dance through your head!
Coconut Cream Martini Recipe:
-1 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
-2 oz Half & Half
Pour contents in a shaker with ice. Shake well or blend. Rim the glass with honey and dip it in sweetened coconut flakes, brown sugar or crushed graham crackers. Fill with ice (unless blended), pour, sip and relax.
