Notes

*Coconut Syrup Recipe:
Ingredients:
Instructions: Stir all ingredients until the sugar has dissolved. I use 1 tbsp of the Flavorganics brand, but if you use another brand, you may need more. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Add one ounce of vodka to help the syrup last longer.
 
Recipe Variation #2 - Frozen Coconut Daiquiri
This blended daiquiri is smooth, creamy, and not too sweet! Make your own cream of coconut by combining 1 can of coconut cream with 1 3/4 cup sugar and a pinch of salt. Find full recipe details for homemade cream of coconut here.

  1. Combine all ingredients with 3/4 cup cup ice (preferably crushed) in a blender.
  2. Blend on high until smooth.
  3. Pour into a large coupe or cocktail glass and garnish with a lime twist (or an edible flower, if desired).
