The Coconut Snowball – Christmas Cocktail

Christmas is always a good time to have some cocktails with our friends and family.
it’s the festive time of the year where everything is decorated and full of Christmas spirit – so why not bring that Christmas spirit into our drinks :).

In this holiday cocktail, I used coconut rum, hazelnut liquor and some white rum infused with vanilla I thought with pair well with the other ingredients.
I topped everything with coconut water and garnished with coconut flakes to give it the snowball effect.

Holiday special cocktail

The result is an awesome and light cocktail with notes of hazelnut and vanilla that will make a perfect boozy and happy holiday, Cheers and Merry Christmas!
