What You’ll Need

Crafting this effortless cocktail requires just four ingredients, along with ice and optional garnishes, making it a simple yet flavorful mixer for any occasion.

  • Coconut Rum: Coconut rum enhances the coconut flavor of this winter cocktail. You could use regular white rum if needed, the drink will just have less of a cocktail flavor.
  • Blue Curaçao: This not only adds a striking blue hue to a drink but also gives a citrusy and slightly bitter flavor, enhancing both the visual appeal and taste of the cocktail.
  • Coconut Water: Adds the coconut flavor to the cocktail, while keeping it light and refreshing.
  • Corn Syrup: Helps the coconut flakes stick to the rim of the glass.
  • Coconut flakes: Add a decorative touch to the cocktail glass.

How to Make a Jack Frost Cocktail

Here’s a quick breakdown of the assembly of this frosty drink.

  • Prep the glass: Coat the rim of a glass with corn syrup and dip into a shallow plate of coconut flakes. Fill with ice cubes.
  • Prepare the cocktail: Pour in 1 shot of coconut rum and add a half shot of blue curacao then top it off with coconut water. Enjoy!

Tips and Variations

Experiment with different combinations to find the Jack Frosty variation that suits your taste preferences and the occasion best.

  • Jack Frost Frozen Cocktail. Blend all the ingredients with ice to create a frozen version of the cocktail. 
  • Adjust the sweetness. Blue curacao and coconut water are both on the sweet side, so no additional sugar is added to this cocktail. However, if you prefer things extra sweet, you can always add in some simple syrup.
  • Use white rum. No coconut rum on hand? No worries. Any white rum will work in this Jack Frost cocktail. It’ll just have a slightly less coconut-y flavor.
  • Skip the coconut garnish. The coconut flake garnish is completely optional, so feel free to omit if you don’t like the texture or simply don’t want to take the time to garnish the glass.
  • Make coconut water ice cubes. You can freeze the coconut water into ice cubes and use them in the cocktail instead of regular ice cubes, so the flavor isn’t diluted so quickly.

Can This Jack Frost Winter Cocktail Be Prepared in Advance?

The Jack Frost cocktail is best enjoyed fresh to preserve its vibrant colors and flavors but if you want a head start you can pre-rim the glasses with corn syrup and coconut in advance. 

To ensure that your cocktail will be cool and refreshing keep the coconut water and coconut rum chilled in the refrigerator.  The visual appeal of the Jack Frost cocktail is enhanced when it’s freshly mixed.
